Information on Pershing Park Located in the Burlingame Park Neighborhood!

Pershing Park in Burlingame, CA 94010

Growing up in San Mateo Park, my mom and dad often took me to Pershing Park located in neighboring Burlingame Park. Pershing Park was actually an old elementary school that got converted into a neighborhood park in the early 80’s (However, I was too young to remember it as a school).
I have so many childhood memories at this park, although; the park I used to play in is not the park you see today. About 5 or 6 years ago they remodeled the park and added some new features, but removed the sand. Instead, they added a new type of rubber ground under the play structures which is safer for kids to play on. While safety padding may not be as fun, at least parents can rest assured that their children are playing in an area that is as safe as possible.
The park is smaller than most local parks but is not to be overlooked. It has a few half-size basketball courts, a backboard style tennis/raquetball wall, a decent sized play structure, and a great size lawn that is pet/dog friendly. The park can get a little crowded on weekends during peak hours. However, if you are able to bring your children to Pershing Park during a weekday, I consider this park to be second to none.

San Mateo Park School Walk-A-Jog! (Saturday – May 17th, 2008)

· Comments Off on San Mateo Park School Walk-A-Jog! (Saturday – May 17th, 2008) 

Hey There,

Another great local event is taking place soon! Having been born and raised in San Mateo Park has had its benefits. One of those benefits was being able to attend San Mateo Park Elementary School. The “Walk-a-Jog,” the school’s most notable annual fundraiser, is an event where students gather sponsors to donate per-lap. Then, Run, Walk or Jog to accumulate laps. The course consists of the four connected streets (Clark, Crescent, West Bellevue, & Hurlingham) surrounding the school which are closed to handle the stampede of running students. Participants are later awarded and ranked based on laps completed. After the race, the PTA puts on a carnival-style event with food, entertainment, a raffle and/or silent auction. Over the years, I have attended many of Park School’s Walk-A-Jog events. From all of which, I can recall great memories that will last a lifetime!
