Community Spotlight: San Mateo

July 26, 2018

When buying a home, there are community must-haves that everyone is looking for. One may want an activity filled community calendar, famed local eateries, walkability to shops, or a nice park to spend time in. Beresford Park in San Mateo has something for everyone.

This neighborhood park is located conveniently off Alameda de las Pulgas and 28th Avenue in San Mateo. It is home to the one and only Community Garden and Garden Center. Take part in planting, cultivating and giving back to the neighborhood all while helping the environment. Bring your book to read among the fruits and veggies, teach your kids about eating healthy, or cook a tasty meal with fresh picked herbs.

Beresford is ready for any sports activity you want to play. Enjoy the lighted tennis courts, 4 bocce ball courts, ballfields, and full skate park! The large field by the playground is open for anything else.

Play, climb, and explore the huge modern playground and tot area. There are all kinds of structures to use and parents can easily watch or play too!

One of the best ways to appreciate our Peninsula weather is to picnic at the park! Bring your bbq or snacks to the drop-in area and soak up the sun. Planning a party? Rent one of 4 picnic areas available at Beresford located throughout the park.

On top of all the outdoor amenities open to the public, there is the Beresford Recreation Center located at the entrance to the park. Summer camps, after school care, and adult classes are all available to the community.

Once you’re done playing, head to the Hillsdale Shopping Center down the street, the Shops at Bay Meadows minutes away, or downtown San Mateo a few miles away. Beresford is one of San Mateo’s greatest parks in the heart of the Bay Area.
