San Mateo County Parks is making it easy and fun for park users to share design ideas for Flood County Park’s 2020 Landscape Plan park features in person and online.
Information gathered during this period of the Realize Flood Park project will guide the development of schematic designs for new and updated park features, including sports and play areas, picnic and gathering areas, historic resources and the park’s urban forest and ecology. The design options will be presented to the public for comments beginning this summer.
The park’s Landscape Plan was developed through a series of public meetings that identified the community’s goals and priorities for reinvigorating Flood Park. In 2020, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors approved the Landscape Plan and certified the environmental impact report.

Flood County Park is a 21-acre park located in Menlo Park and near Atherton. The park serves neighboring communities of North Fair Oaks and East Palo Alto. Throughout it’s 86-year history, the park has provided recreational facilities including baseball and softball fields, tennis and volleyball courts, and at one time, a large swimming pool. The park is named for James Clair Flood, an early landowner who settled in the area in 1863.
