  • Love this park and it's been a go-to for a number of years. There is enough to do for the whole family - from the train ride and carousel for kids to boating in the lake or just a nice stroll in the wooded area. A small stream flows through the park that makes for good picnic spots near the water and there are a ton more options with bbq areas and tables etc. Parking on the street can be tricky but for a day long visit the paid parking is very convenient.
  • It's a nice park especially now that the bike paths have been upgraded. Enjoying the Nature's day or Persian New Year celebration which occurs almost every year in Vasona park at the end of March / beginning of April.
  • Great local park! plenty of open space, picnic tables and playgrounds. Paved walking/biking paths in the park, good for a nice walk or jog. The paths are part of the larger bike path system, so you can either stay in the park, or just pass through as you head further north or south, on a longer ride. On the other side of the park there is a very popular train and carousel ride and a gazebo where they have performances during the summer.
  • I love this park. It's a gem of nature tucked away in the city. Tons of green space, walking and biking trails all surrounding a beautiful lake. I come here weekly with my 2 year old and dog. They have two very nice children's play areas, the park is clean and well kept and it's such a large area you really feel like you're escaping the city. They do charge $6 for parking but it is so worth it. One of the best parks I've been to in the bay area.
  • I haven’t been in three years, i didn’t realize they don’t sell tickets in person... it was a little awkward to have to exit the park and pull over on the road and purchase our tickets on my phone... but it was worth it. The lights had doubled since I had been last and my daughter really enjoyed it. It made our holiday season for sure! Nothing like staying toasty in my car and seeing millions of lights 😍
