Oh wow! This place is just amazing, I regret not finding it earlier. I was frequently passing by Mission blvd thinking Mountains are so beautiful, there must be a park nearby! and sure it's there! Nature, walking trails, even some very old cars are there to top the experience and make it more like a history walk. It's extremely beautiful, especially for those who loves mountains like me. And it feels huge, so it's a perfect escape from city life when you need to.

A surprise gem in the midst of the East Bay. The swimming area is wonderful with a faux beach and extremely safe for toddlers with the right swim gear. The lake is a great place to visit with family. Our almost-4-year-old was followed around by 2 ducklings!

This is an awesome place for walking, running, cycling, and bird watching. It can be pretty windy since it is right on the bay, but it has beautiful views. I loved checking out the different species of birds that were searching for food, especially the sandpipers. This is a great place to exercise if you like to be surrounded by nature!
