Saturday: Walk to see new plans for Flood Park


To show community members the most recent plans to revitalize the 21-acre Flood Park in Menlo Park, there will be a public guided walk there at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 19.

The plan is the result of a series of public "Reimagine Flood Park" meetings held last year. During the walk, San Mateo County Parks officials will discuss the plan's proposed improvements to current park features, new features, and next steps for the changes.

Proposed features for the park renovations and construction include a shaded structure for an outdoor market, picnic spaces, trails, a pump track, an amphitheater, a sand volleyball pit, a soccer/lacrosse field, a baseball field, multiple play areas to accommodate all abilities, and tennis, bocce and basketball courts.

Visitors who plan to attend the event should gather at the black canopy near the lawn area at Flood Park's Manzanita picnic area, where there will be light breakfast foods and beverages before the walk.

The Flood Park plan is scheduled to be presented to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors on April 7 at 4 p.m. at the board's chambers at 400 County Center in Redwood City.

Go to the Reimagine Flood Park webpage for more information.

Plan looks great, only thing missing is an off leash dog area. But it still works for me.

The soccer fields are too close to the houses on Del Norte & the Haven House residents. The commission should have considered a multi-purpose field for sports fields. Hope the commission will consider the neighborhood residents concerns
