San Mateo is enlisting the com-munity’s help to update the city’sCentral Park Master Plan with theCity Council approving a contractwith RRM Design Group to assistin creating long-standing goals.The park’s current master planwas adopted in 1982 and officialsbelieve it’s time to update thevision of the city’s downtownamenity. “Central Park is really the gate-way into the city … but CentralPark hasn’t had a service or designupgrade in a long time and it’skind of showing its age,” saidCouncilman David Lim.The park holds numerous publicfestivals, the Music in the Parkseries, athletic events, is a greatplace for families to spend timewith each other and is frequentedby people going for walks afterdining downtown, Lim said.Public input is valuable andlocals will be given ample oppor-tunity to contribute ideas as themaster plan develops, said theParks and Recreation DirectorSheila Canzian. According to theproposal by RRM Design Group, alandscape architecture, engineer-ing and surveying firm, public out-reach will be conducted throughfocus groups, workshops, stake-holder meetings, surveys andsocial media platforms. “It’s very important to get thepublic involved because it is ourcommunity park. We want to hearfrom everybody about what theywant to see. The more peopleinvolved in the design, the betterthe end product will be,” Lim said.Although it could be some timebefore actual construction begins,updating the master plan is a criti-cal step in enhancing CentralPark, Canzian said. “In the long term, it becomes areally important blueprint so thatwe know that, as money becomesavailable, what are the mostimportant improvements orchanges that need to happen,”

ission Street is the boundary tothe west; Cesar Chavez Street(Army Street) defines the north-ern border; on the east is Highway 101 andto the south was constructed Interstate 280.This defines the present area of BernalHeights in San Francisco. The original land grant was to JoseCornelio Bernal (b. 1795), grandson of pio-neer soldier of the de Anza party, JuanFrancisco Bernal. Juan Francisco Bernalhelped establish Mission Dolores a shortdistance northwest of his grandson’s 4,446-acre land grant named Rancho Rincon de lasSalinas y Potrero Viejo in 1839. The open,rolling pasturage of the hill had been usedfor sheep and cattle grazing by the mission.Upon obtaining the grant, Jose constructedan adobe dwelling near the Mission Road(near St. Luke’s Hospital). Jose died shortlythereafter and his wife, Carmen, moved tothe area of Ocean and Mission Road to live.After California became a state in 1850,Carmen had to fight in the courts to retainthe land grant, which she did, but in theprocess she bankrupted herself withlawyer’s fees and lost the property.The southern area of Bernal Heights wasperiodically flooded by the Islas Creek thatflowed from the west and drained MountDavidson and Twin Peaks watershed. IslasCreek is now covered over (flumed) byInterstate 280 and Alemany Boulevardwhich are just south of the old St. Mary’sCollege that was established here in 1863by Joseph Sadoc Alemany, O.P., archbishopof San Francisco. Alemany Boulevard isnamed in honor of Archbishop Alemany.The college moved to Oakland in 1889 andthen to Moraga, in the East Bay, in 1928. In1924, the land was opened for developmentof a subdivision named St. Mary’s Park. It isa bell-shaped subdivision with streetsnamed for the first teachers at St. Mary’sCollege — Agnon, Genebern and Justin; theSt. Mary’s Park Recreation Center wasdeveloped to the east of the old collegegrounds. The entrance to St. Mary’s Collegeopened out upon the Mission Road (ElCamino Real) in the 1800s. South of St.
