The transformation of the 58-acre Tunitas Creek Beach property into San Mateo County’s newest park is in progress. Construction crews are working on the mid-bluff area and the access trail to the beach. The pink house has been demolished and natural material was cleared followed by rough grading. This is where most visitor services will be located, including seating, an overlook to the beach and southern bluffs, a picnic sites, interpretive panels, public restrooms, and staff facilities. Construction is anticipated to begin this spring.
Crews have also cleared a landslide that encompassed approximately one-third of the beach access trail and are rebuilding the trail with a more stable slope. Weather permitting, this part of the project will be completed in the next few months.
Grading of the rest of the site, including where parking, overlooks, and pedestrian paths will be constructed, are also scheduled to begin this spring. Once the rainy season subsides, work will resume on construction of the south loop trail accessible from the parking area.
