Scheduled maintenance at the Dish Area to require closures
The complete closure of the Dish Area for five days will minimize the amount of time that access to the recreation region will be restricted. The Matadero Creek Trail will remain open.
From Monday, Aug. 15, through Friday, Aug. 19, the Stanford Dish Area will be completely closed to the public.
The closure will allow for coordinated maintenance activities in and around the area. The decision to completely close the Dish Area was made in an effort to minimize the amount of time that access to the recreation region will be restricted.
Work will include service road and walking-path maintenance, storm-pipe repair and tree watering and mulching. The Dish Area is expected to reopen on Saturday, Aug. 20, and remain open during the remainder of the summer and fall.
The Matadero Creek Trail, located at the intersection of Page Mill Road and Foothill Expressway and from parking spaces along Coyote Hill Road, will remain open every day from sunrise to sunset. It offers broad views of San Francisco Bay.
Alpine Gate closure
Plans for a separate California Water Service project to install a water line near the Alpine Road and Piers Lane access point will require the closure of the Dish Area’s Alpine Gate for several weeks. Dates for this project have not been finalized. Cal Water will post signs in the parking area and at the gate in advance of the expected closure.
During that closure, there will be no parking on Alpine Road and Piers Lane. Alternative public parking will be available on Stanford Avenue and Coyote Hill Road.
