Washington Park

The Burlingame Recreation Division provides hundreds of classes and activities each year in the park and the Recreation Center. Tennis courts, a children’s playground, picnic areas, and baseball facilities are all in constant use.

The park also has historical significance. It was once home to the Gunst Estate. Many of the magnificent large trees in the park date back to the estate. The baseball grandstand in the park dates back to the ‘30s. It was renovated in 1989. It still retains its original character and enjoys heavy use. The is located at 850 Burlingame Avenue.


Cuernavaca Park, located at Hunt and Alcazar in the northwest corner of Burlingame, Cuernavaca Park boasts a spectacular view of the Bay. It has radical elevation changes allowing the park to serve as a major green belt as well as a site for youth baseball and softball games. The children’s playground and basketball court are located at the highest elevation on the site. Park users often pause to view planes landing at the San Francisco airport. Apart from the baseball field the park is designed for casual neighborhood use.

Dog Exercise Park. Check out the City of Burlingame’s Dog Exercise Park! The idea of a dog park is for the dogs to run and play together. A dog park is meant for our domestic dogs to meet occasionally and run and socialize together without any one of them taking the dominant role. As humans, we are the leaders in our dogs lives. This is why you must have control over your dog so it will listen to you and obey commands.

We welcome dogs that are:

  • Obedient and social
  • Non-aggressive
  • Not in heat
  • Over 4 months old (due to mature immune systems)
  • Currently licensed and vaccinated (spaying & neutering recommended)

Mills Canyon is a wildlife area within the City limits. Within the park is a hiking trail. The loop trail gives the walker a variety of views of the Canyon. Plant and animal species native to the Coastal Foothills live in the Canyon. The park is intended for limited recreation. In order to protect the native plants and animals, dogs off leash are not welcome in the Canyon. The Friends of Mills Canyon is a volunteer group that provides organized thematic hikes in the park. The Friends also engage in improvement/cleanup projects throughout the year.
