Mezes Park Scheduled for Major Renovation
Work starts Monday, February 11 – park will be closed during renovation (tennis courts will be open)

Redwood City’s Mezes Park will undergo a renovation project beginning Monday, February 11th. The park will be closed during the renovation and parking around the perimeter of the park will be restricted. The tennis courts will remain open; however, they may require occasional temporary closure.

All who enjoy Mezes Park can look forward to some major improvements including:

  • New restroom
  • New play equipment
  • New, safer pathways
  • New pedestrian lights
  • And, a team of Eagle Scouts will be building, donating, and installing a new bench in the park.

Mezes Park is expected to re-open this summer. Redwood City thanks you for your patience during the renovation!

 Mezes Park is a 1.7 acre park donated by Mr. Mezes in 1854. We’re not 100% certain, but according to the City’s consultant, it is the oldest public park in California, and is certainly one of the oldest public parks in the entire country (reportedly second to New York’s Central Park)! It was last renovated in 1976, and a portion of the large playground was replaced by a KaBoom! project in 2009 – so it’s due for some upgrades.

For more information, please contact the Redwood City Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department at 780-7250 or the Engineering Division at 780-7379
