What's New?

2014 Toy and Book Program

The holiday season is a time of joy, happiness, family, and friendship. Unfortunately, there are local kids and families in need, who don't have the opportunity to share in the spirit of the holidays.

The Redwood City Police and Fire Departments, Police Activities League, and Parks Recreation and Community Services, have teamed up with the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, San Carlos Fire, Woodside Fire, and the CARON Project to bring the Christmas Toy and Book Drive and the holiday spirit right to the doorstep of many needy families. With help from the Fair Oaks Community Center and a corps of volunteers, this annual event has become a welcome tradition in the Redwood City community. But it can only happen with the community's help.

Save Water

As you all know, we're in the midst of a very serious drought and it's up to everyone to do what they can to conserve water. Of course the City is diligent in seeking ways to reduce water use, and a lot of that effort has focused on our parks. Although we already do a lot to conserve water in the parks, we are now going to take another measure in that direction - turning off the water features in our parks' playgrounds.
