Skyline Park Project - Completed

Members of the Burlingame community have repeatedly requested additional hours and areas to have dogs off-leash within the City’s park system. In 2016, the Dog Park Task Force (DPTF) asked Recreation Division staff to research possible locations for a new park which would allow for off leash options.  

Staff reviewed both City-owned and privately-owned parcels. Most of the potential sites that staff reviewed were privately owned, and there were challenges with access and acquisition costs. The three-acre parcel located on the west side of Skyline Boulevard, between Rivera Drive and Trousdale, belongs to the City. In the 1970s, the City considered building a park on this site. More recently, the City was considering relocating Fire Station 35 on Hillside Drive to this location but determined not to move forward with this project. Over the past two years, PG&E has removed trees along the pipeline that traverses the property, and Parks staff, in coordination with CAL FIRE crews, has completed significant fuel reduction work. Additionally, the Parks staff reduced the poison oak and thistles that were prevalent on the site as part of the fuel reduction work.

In September 2016, Burlingame Parks and Recreation staff met with Community Development Department planners to discuss the details of the land. Staff agreed that this piece of land would be a good location for a  passive park.
