It is fondly referred to as the ‘The Park’ by its wealthy residents who no doubt appreciate the serenity and upscale air of the exclusive San Mateo neighborhood.
After it was subdivided in 1896 – San Mateo Park, which was originally a 400-acre piece of the Howard Estate -found utility as a cattle-rearing and dairy-farming ground. By the early 1900’s, it was being auctioned off to rich San Francisans.

Every intersection in the neighborhood has 69 landscaped crescents, circles and medians.
