Poplar Creek has become the focus of new city discussions involving its future. Last month, the San Mateo United Homeowners Association sent a letter to City Hall asking that it “…be preserved as recreational green space for all future generations to enjoy.” Mayor Goethals responded that there is significant debt attached to that space, but he appreciates the concern. In regard to the future, he noted, “Each of us must participate in this process to make Poplar Creek the best possible space for the community and our kids.”
Poplar Creek is showing its community value with the recently opened 18-hole, American FootGolf course, located on the front nine holes. Fun for groups or families, FootGolf is a game combining the skills of soccer & golf, using a No. 5 soccer ball with 21-inch holes.
