New Feature: “The Parks of San Carlos.”

February 4, 2009

San Carlos has an incredibly nice assortment of public parks.   Some of these parks have athletic fields, others have children's playgrounds, and some are just great places to hike and get away from it all for a few hours.   Whatever you're looking for in a public park,  San Carlos probably has it. But if you're like me, you may have lived here for many years and not realized that half of these parks even existed.   So that's the purpose of the new “Parks of San Carlos” series — to make you more aware of the great facilities we have for our enjoyment.

This idea isn't new — I actually got this inspiration from my RE/MAX colleague and fellow blogger Jim Minkey, who writes an outstanding blog on Foster City.  On his blog, he has a very informative series on all the parks in Foster City.  I thought this was such a cool idea, that I decided to do the same thing for San Carlos.   Thanks, Jim for the idea and the go-ahead to do this!

So each week or so, there will be a new feature on one of the parks in San Carlos.  My wife Patty and I, along with our dog Maggie, will trek through each of the parks and give you a rundown on what they're all about.  Since there are 15 or so parks to cover, this will keep us pretty busy!  We hope you enjoy the series.     The first one to be featured will be…

Big Canyon Park

Look for that review in an upcoming post!

    My family and I love living near and hiking and running in Big Canyon Park. It’s one of our San Carlos favorites. Jim Minkey is a friend, glad you took this idea from him.
    And, thanks for this blog, I’ve appreciated reading it the last month or two.

    Hi Justin,

    Thanks for writing in. We actually did the Big Canyon Park hike just this morning. What a great place! I have driven by it a thousand times, but have never hiked it (which is exactly the reason why I’m doing this series.)

    The review should be out in the next few days. I’m really looking forward to review out all of the other parks that I haven’t been to yet.

    Thanks again,
