Most City of Burlingame playgrounds are now open. For your family’s safety, all playground visitors must follow the mandatory safety rules from the California Department of Public Health (posted at each playground location). Rules include:
- Age 2 and over must wear face coverings.
- Don’t crowd. Maintain 6 feet distance from others. Playground maximum occupancy is posted at each location.
- You are responsible for washing or sanitizing hands before and after use.
- Children must be actively supervised at all times.
- No eating or drinking in the playground area.
- Limit visits to 30 minutes when others are waiting.
If you are unable to comply with the safety and park rules, we ask that you refrain from using the playground areas at this time. The City does not have the personnel available to continually monitor the playgrounds and, short of physically detaining every rule violator, there is no way to ensure that the safety guidelines are uniformly observed.
It is important to note that even when all State safety guidelines are followed, visitors should be aware that there are risks involved with using this high-touch, shared equipment. While the City has dedicated extra resources to cleaning playground equipment, no amount of periodic cleaning can guarantee that the equipment will be free of viruses or other infectious materials since they can be left behind after a single use. Just like all other activities we participate in during COVID-19, people will have to make their own decisions about what risks they feel comfortable taking. We all need to take personal responsibility for following the rules, being a good neighbor, and taking steps to protect ourselves and our families. Remember, your actions affect the health and well-being of our community. Learn more on the California Department of Public Health website at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/.

Bayside Dog Exercise Park
We welcome dogs that are:
- Obedient and social
- Not in heat
- Over 4 months old (due to mature immune systems)
- Currently licensed and vaccinated (spaying & neutering recommended)
Dog Area Size: 3/4 Acre
Please read and abide by the following guidelines:
Hours of operation: 6:00am to 9:00pm
Parking: Spaces are available in front of the park on Airport Boulevard or in Bayside Park.

- Adults must always keep an eye on your dog(s) and child(ren) at all times.
- No more than 2 dogs per owner.
- Leash dogs while entering and exiting the playground. Dog owners must always have a leash in hand.
- Try and have your leash off your dog before a large number of dogs come running up to you. Your dog feels more vulnerable if it is leashed and approached by several loose dogs.
- There is less of a chance for aggressive behavior when all dogs are off leash in this situation.
Toys: If your dog is possessive of its toys, please do not bring the toys to the Dog Exercise Park.
Care of the Facility: You must clean up after your dog. Fill any hole your dog digs.
Dogs are not allowed off leash on any athletic field or other areas of the park at any time.
The City of Burlingame assumes no liability for the users of the Dog Exercise Park. Use this facility at your own risk.
Please report all dog bites as soon as possible to the Parks & Recreation Department at 650-558-7300.
Community Garden at Bayside Fields
The site is between the batting cage and storage sheds at Bayside Fields. The area is able to accommodate 22 4’ x 8’ raised wood planter beds, including accessible beds.
The program structure of the Burlingame Community Garden was designed with input from the BGC. The Community Garden will be managed by the Parks and Recreation Department and maintained by the members of the Community Garden. The fee per planter box is expected to be $65 per year. The objective is to have the planter box fees cover the costs of water to the Community Garden.
Please contact at 650-558-7300 or email@example.com for more information.
Located in the northwest corner of Burlingame, Cuernavaca Park boasts a spectacular view of the Bay. It has radical elevation changes allowing the park to serve as a major green belt as well as a site for youth baseball and softball games. The children’s playground and basketball court are located at the highest elevation on the site. Park users often pause to view planes landing at the San Francisco airport. Apart from the baseball field the park is designed for casual neighborhood use.

The park also has historical significance. It was once home to the Gunst Estate. Many of the magnificent large trees in the park date back to the estate. The baseball grandstand in the park dates back to the ‘30s. It was renovated in 1989. It still retains its original character and enjoys heavy use.
