A vast area embracing the middle and south forks of San Pedro Creek, which are Steelhead spawning grounds, this park is nestled amongst the Santa Cruz Mountain range and the foothills of Pacifica. The park offers group picnic areas, family picnic sites with barbecue pits, a self-guided nature trail, hiking trails, a visitor center, and views of the picturesque, seasonal Brooks Water Fall.

San Pedro Valley Park is a walker’s paradise. There are trails for all ages and fitness levels, ranging from the Valley View Trail to the wide vistas of San Pedro Valley and the Pacific Ocean from the top of Montara Mountain.

The facilities at San Pedro Valley are primarily for day use only. Two picnic areas are available by reservation, the North Walnut Grove (accommodates 100) and the South Walnut Grove (accommodates 200).

A visitor center near the park entrance displays exhibits about the ecosystem of San Pedro Valley and its plant and animal species. Some are live exhibits. The center is open weekends and holidays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

No dogs are allowed in the park. Bicycles are allowed only on Weiler Ranch Road. The park is open from 8:00 a.m. until dusk.

Take the Pacific Coast Highway to Linda Mar Blvd, then head east on Linda Mar Blvd. until it dead-ends at Oddstad Blvd. Turn right on Oddstad, go about 100 feet and turn left into the park entrance at Rosita Road.

Entrance fees are $5.00 per car

The park, tucked away on a Pacifica hillside in Park Pacifica, is one of those little-known Bay Area gems. Most notably, it sports a massive sloping lawn, well-kept amenities and one of the nicest children’s playgrounds in the Bay Area. The park is extensive with forest, open space, a horseshoe area and a barbecue picnic area. Group picnic sites are also available.

Perhaps the favorite event on this site is the lively, annual Fourth of July celebration, hosted by the City of Pacifica that includes face painting, tug-o-war, water balloons, races, great food and great fun for all!

Turn right off Oddstad onto Yosemite Dr. Go all the way to the top of the hill. The Park is on your left. Free Parking.
