This is a nice park for summer picnics and country strolls. I enjoy it as a place to stop and 'chill after work. Lots of picnic tables and a covered bridge to cross! more »
This is a great park for taking a stroll, or a nap, but not for sleeping in overnight if you're homeless or a crusty traveler. Get a bagel across the street and try to make it up to SF or down to Santa Cruz.
Nice park to take your kids too...can even cross bridge to go look at the horses
Great park for the kids to play at. You will have to over look the homeless that like to hangout there. They really are ok people, kind and respectful for the most part. The kids will have a great time playing there.
This park used to have BBQ's no more, picnic tables are few and far between. Trees are being removed and the park for children is in full sun. Sport groups take over the lawn areas. Not much of a place for a dip in the creek or a family BBQ anymore.
Use to be nice when i was a kid now its kinda dirty and people sleeping on it
