Laurelwood Park reviews
A beautiful hidden gem in San Mateo. Very well maintained park with plenty of open space grass area. Moderate hi Kiki game trails with an amazing overlook at the top of Sugarloaf Peak. It’s a climb... more »
This was such a great hike up a challenging hill. The spectacular view from the top of Sugarloaf is worth every step. more »
Rare park in the peninsula which is better classified as a hill. It has decent hiking trails to the top. The foliage is just enough for shade but there are segments without trees and it can be scorching hot. The trails are not mapped out well so it is easy to get lost but given the park not being too big, you eventually end up at the top. Hiked to the top with a 3 and 5 yr old toddlers. Both made it eventually and it took us an hour to return to the base park. Playground has a decent sized gym but no shade so avoid during mid-day. Not that many people. Amazing views that stretch to SF. Highly recommend it!
Laurelwood Park is a delightful place to visit and enjoy. It was completely redone and updated about 8 years ago. New picnic area, new restrooms, new lawn area, new children's play area with safety surfaces and an area for educational meetings among native shrubs and grasses. A beautiful old Oak Tree to one side of the large lawn are provides shade to the picnic tables and anchors the paved path near the restrooms. A year round spring feed creek outlines the east edge of the lawn area as well as meandering past an easy hiking trail going east toward the earthen dam then down Laurelwood Drive toward the bay.
