Bringing the living coast line back to Coyote Point Recreation Area.
The Eastern Promenade Project has several distinct elements that will result in a completed Promenade at the Coyote Point Recreation Area. These improvements include a new sandy beach shaped as a crenulate bay, a re-located restroom building and a re-configured parking area. The new parking area will be located just up the hill and the new restroom will be situated near the present location. The Eastern Promenade is being designed with climate change adaptations.

Once again, the Eastern Promenade will be a great location for families to enjoy the beach, individuals and clubs to open water swim, and others to enjoy watching shorebirds and the waters of the bay.
May 2021 through March 2022
Location & Background
Coyote Point Recreation Area is located southeast of San Francisco International Airport along the San Francisco Bay shoreline. For many years, the Promenade has been a popular destination for swimmers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, kayakers, cyclists, and walkers.
The Western Promenade was completed in Fall 2014. This project resulted in a renovated Promenade Trail between the Bay Trail and the windsurfer concession. In addition, three launch ramps were built to accommodate the windsurfers, kiteboarders, sea kayakers, and paddleboarders who use the park.
Partners in Developing the Eastern Promenade
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation is underwriting the completion of the design, planning and permitting phase of the Eastern Promenade Project. For construction, grant funds will be pursued.
