For 86 years, Flood Park, located in Menlo Park near North Fair Oaks, has been a favorite location for family and group picnics, community gatherings, daily walks by neighbors and a range of sports activities. In 2015, an assessment of the park revealed that many features and infrastructure required repair or replacement. Simultaneously, community demand grew for additional uses and sports fields.

As a result, the San Mateo County Parks Department launched Reimagine Flood Park, a multi-year in-depth community engagement process to identify community goals and priority uses for the park’s redesign. We heard from over 500 meeting participants and received over 200 survey responses. The resulting concept plan, which reflected the hopes and desires of the public, went through environmental review in 2017 through 2019. In 2020, the County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the Landscape Plan.

Now, with Realize Flood Park, we make our collaborative design a reality. Get involved by attending community meetings and keeping up with project updates.
