The City of San Bruno is to be applauded for understanding the need and importance of preserving open space and working to bring connectivity and accessibly for all. Below is an excert from the City of San Bruno's approved General Plan:
The Open Space and Recreation Element focuses on pro- vision of neighborhood parks, plazas, and open spaces within walking distance of all San Bruno residents and workers. San Bruno recognizes the importance of open spaces to both residents' quality of life and the city’s overall image, and seeks to provide accessible, safe, and well-maintained areas. One key factor in the expansion of the city’s recreational facilities is the preservation of the Crestmoor Canyon open space, with enhanced accessibility, multi-use trails, staging areas, and other amenities. Additionally, coordination with surrounding agencies will enable the City to support preservation of and/or connections to the Golden Gate National Recre- ation Area, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) wetlands, Peninsula Watershed lands, and Junipero Serra County Park

Please note that policies in Chapter 4: Transportation identify a comprehensive network of bicycle and pedes- trian routes.
OSR-43 Work with San Mateo County to publicize the hiking trails available within Junipero Serra Park. Coordinate with San Francisco Public Util- ities District and Caltrans to provide trail con- nections between Junipero Serra Park and San Andreas Lake.
OSR-44 Attempt to make San Bruno’s overall street and trail system more park-like through streetscap- ing improvements along pedestrian and bicycle routes.
OSR-40 Consider developing a multi-use/bicycle trail through Crestmoor Canyon. Develop a new trailhead and staging area, utilizing the exist- ing fire road for the trail right-of-way. Install informational signage about the vegetation and wildlife found within the Canyon.
OSR-41 Evaluate development of a contiguous bicycle and pedestrian route through San Bruno that provides connections between the Bay Area Ridge Trail, San Bruno BART Station, and the Bay Trail. Utilize the new Crestmoor Canyon multi-use trail to link the western and eastern portions of the city. Utilize neighborhood side- walks, and if necessary, provide way-finding signage to direct walkers and bicyclists.
