Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Redwood City

Still wondering what to do for Valentine’s Day? Redwood City offers many opportunities for you to create a special day to share with your loved ones.

Hiking & Sightseeing

Start your day with a relaxing hike through one of our beautiful parks. Preserve Park and Stulsaft Park both offer wonderful hiking and walking trails. For those who want to include Fido in their romantic stroll, Stulsaft Park offers a wooded “off-leash” trail.

Want to really get the heart pumping? San Mateo County’s Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve in Redwood City offers 467 acres of woodlands and grasslands for wonderful hiking and sightseeing adventures. Within those 467 acres, the park contains 10 miles of trails where hikers can explore its varied habitats. Sylvan Trail, a non-equestrian-use trail, is popular for joggers and hikers. The Edgewood Trailhead boasts a difficulty rating of “strenuous” for those who want a little challenge, but the views are worth it!

Picnic in the Park

Enjoy your afternoon with a romantic picnic in one of our picturesque parks. Over a dozen Redwood City parks offer picnic tables that are available on a first come, first served basis. Ten of our parks feature picnic areas that you can also reserve for large groups or parties.

If you want to get comfortable and spread out your picnic blanket, many of our parks also offer grassy areas for you to enjoy and relax.
