We walk almost daily and the greenbelts allow us to walk through parks, by ponds, by wildlife. Often you don't have to cross any streets. You often forget you are in a city. One of the nice features of Davis

What a wonderful oasis in the city of Davis. A unique and beautiful surrounding in the heart of the city. Acres of lush land. A beautiful lake in center. Ducks, wild fowl and other wild life. A wetlands preserve. Great running paths, a playground, benches to sit and contemplate. Lots of parking. Bathroom.

Small college towns are often magical. Davis is no exception and a major part of its charm is its greenbelt. A beautiful stroll that winds through picturesque plantings, children's play areas and places to just sit and take the air. Other folks enjoying the area are all friendly. Dogs (on leashes) are plentiful and their owners do pick up after... More

Davis greenbelt offers people pleasant place to walk (or walk your dogs), or run, or bike, or play sports. And there are many playgrounds for kids too. You can also view many wildlife in this greenbelt, such as Canada geese, great egret, wood duck, mallard, turkey… just to name few. Julie Partansky Pond is the lovely site to watch these... More

I was just there again today! There are lovely well-kept paths for a dog walk or a beautiful bike ride. Check out the flocks of wild turkeys, or enjoy a soccer game at Northstar near the pond and nature reserve! There are lots of play structures and places to picnic.

There are a few greenbelts in Davis, but the North greenbelt (on the Northern side of town) is the largest. It's laid out in a large oval, perhaps a mile in diameter, with the Community Park at the South end and a wildlife pond at the North end. The North greenbelt is quite pretty, with meandering paths and lots of... More

We live just one house away from a section of the Davis Greenbelt. This is a network of walking and biking trails that connects the entire city, and it gives Davis that "country" feel. No matter where you live in Davis, you can walk out your door and be on the greenbelt in a matter of minutes. Many of our... More

I take an hour walk most days first thing. Some of my loveliest morning walks are through the greenbelts of Davis. There are paths in the north and south parts of Davis. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings I like to join the Sierra Club group that starts at Peet's Coffee - Marketplace at 7 a.m. and walks a loop usually... More

Running or biking on the bike paths and green belt in Davis is as good as it gets for a runner and biker. You could run for miles and miles and you won't have to run the same belt for months! It is very scenic, very flat and offers shade in some parts on a hot summer day.
