Through a unanimous vote at the July 26 meeting, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors accepted the Flood Park Updated Landscape Plan noting the Plan reflects a balanced approach in addressing the interests of park visitors and neighbors.
The Plan presented by the San Mateo County Parks Department is based on input gathered through 800 survey responses and a series of community meetings held this year to guide the design of park features identified in the 2020 Landscape Plan. It also incorporates community priorities to preserve heritage trees and the oak woodland and maintains a 100-foot buffer between the park’s fence and sports amenities.
Approval of the Updated Landscape Plan finalizes placement of amenities and brings the goal of revitalizing Flood Park closer to reality. This historic park, the second oldest in the San Mateo County Park system, will continue to provide the comfort of the oak woodland, picnic and gathering spaces, and the adobe building, while also meeting the community’s desire for expanded facilities.
Watch for the announcement of more community events as we continue to seek design ideas for the all-abilities and adventure play areas, the pump track, urban forestry, and sports fields.
