Description

One of the gems of the Peninsula is Coyote Point Park. It offers many forms of recreation from the very cool Magic Mountain Playground to CuriOdyssey, an awesome hands-on science museum and small animal zoo, to beaches and many picnic areas.

Coyote Point Recreation Area in San Mateo is a large 670-acre park complex. San Mateo County acquired the land in 1942 and turned it into a park. The park is along the landing path for the airport, so it is a awesome place for airplane-watching.

It is a scenic, diverse, and very popular park, especially for weekend group picnics. Besides its many picnic areas, it has playgrounds, beaches, large lawns, a marina and yacht club, a fishing jetty, a large nature museum, a conference center, and a public firing range. The park also has a network of roads, bike paths, and pedestrian-only paths.

CuriOdyssey is the highpoint of the park. It's a museum with innovative, hands-on exhibits AND a small zoo with animals that can not be safely released into the wild. We often spend 2-3 hours at this museum. My kids love the trying the exhibits and looking for all of the animals in the habitats. The otter feeding at noon is not to be missed!
