Central Park is a San Mateo landmark. From the beautiful gazebo where hundreds of weddings have taken place to the Bianchi mini train that is a perennial favorite of anyone under five, Central Park is San Mateo’s signature park. It has lighted tennis courts, a playground and baseball field.

It features a granite pagoda, tea house, koi pond and bamboo grove.The Japanese Tea Garden is beautiful throughout the year, but be sure to visit in the late Winter and early Spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
Central Park Recreation Center
During week nights, you can take one of our popular aerobic classes or rent a center space for meetings and other functions. You can do the same on the weekends. Aerobic classes take place in the mornings, and then you can rent the center rooms for all kinds of social events from noon to midnight!
The Mini Train that operates in Central Park is a childhood delight.
