  • This park is really big, it has a beautiful Creek that leads to Vasona Lake, where you can do boating. There are couple of flat trails that you can hike or bike, along the creek. Inside the park, they have many picnic benches, play structures. The weekend we went they were birthday parties, engagement parties. They have a carousel and toy train ride, each costs $2 per person, there's a small snack shack next to these rides. The only disappointment is the parking. For the size of the park, the parking space is limited and charge $6. When we went we couldn't find a spot. We parked in the street adjacent to the park.
  • Parking can be a challenge but don't mind paying the parking fee when necessary, my tot enjoys the train ride and carousel rides and scooting along the very large park. It's great for families to enjoy. We love their Christmas lights as well
  • I love this park for my kids. There is a train ride and Mary-go-round. Both cheap ($2 I think) The playground is large and there is a large grassy area for picnics. Parking was $6 (I think)
  • Nice oasis in the city. Parking is $6 and if you have kids you will want to park in the first lot on the left so you can walk through to the Los Gatos park which has a notable playground featuring a fire truck and jet - They also charge $6 for parking but if you have a season pass with the park district it pays to just walk over the bridge from here. The playgrounds in Oak Meadow are good, they lack noon shade and can be quite crowded (though not as much as the adjacent Los Gatos owned playground). Access to the lake is great they have paddle and sailboats for rent, Great place to have a party-they allow beer and wine! Lots of trails for bicyclists and peds. Parking is plentiful. Buy a park district pass and it pays for itself in a few visits. If you live nearby you should have visited or plan to soon.
  • Beautiful park!! Plenty of fields to run around in, large play area with swings, slides, jungle gym, and old plane and fire truck to climb all over. Great place for kids of all ages. At far side of park is carousel and 1/3 scale miniature train you can ride on for $2 a ticket. The park has peaceful trails you can walk along a small river, however bikes often race along these paths and can be dangerous for small children.
