Tunitas Creek Beach

Several local dignitaries and San Mateo County officials gathered above Tunitas Creek Beach last week on what will eventually become the county’s only recreational beach in its park system. 

The groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday morning capped a collaboration milestone between San Mateo County, the Peninsula Open Space Trust and the California Coastal Conservancy. San Mateo County purchased the 58 acres of land south of Tunitas Creek from POST for $3.2 million in 2019, though it had managed the coastal property since 2017 after POST bought it from private landowners.
