San Mateo County Supervisors Carole Groom and David Pine are set to speak at a celebration for the rejuvenated Eastern Promenade at the Coyote Point Recreation Area on Friday, May 20 at 3 p.m., according to the County.
A new restroom, expanded parking area, accessible beach access points, and an expanded seat wall were all part of the project. Construction began in May last year on the promenade, which is designed with climate change adaptations and includes a new sandy beach shaped as a crenulate bay.
“With the completion of the eastern promenade improvement project, Coyote Point Recreation Area has another major draw for local and out-of-town visitors,” County officials said. “Now that the western and eastern sections of the promenade are connected, walkers, runners and cyclists can make a full loop of the park and connect to the Bay Trail. And, with access to a fully restored beach that is also designed to combat sea level rise, water play in the summer is back at Coyote Point.”
The May 20 celebration will feature information about programs provided by San Mateo County Parks Foundation, San Mateo County Office of Sustainability, CuriOdyssey and San Mateo County Parks.
