San Mateo County Parks to extend hours

San Mateo County Parks will extend hours at its parks starting Friday, April 16, closing at 7 p.m. rather than the current 5 p.m.

Starting May 1, park hours will be extended to 8 p.m., County officials said.

In addition, group picnic reservations are being accepted for May 1 through June 14. Drop-in picnic sites continue to be open.

As we previously reported, Fitzgerald Marine Reserve reopens with modifications on Monday, May 3.

On Friday, May 28, Memorial Park will welcome back campers (make your reservations here).
