Garin and Dry Creek on next to each other. We were on our way to Garin Regional Park when we saw an entrance to Dry Creek Park. I tried to find an address for Dry Creek but no luck. Dry Creek has free parking while Garin may charge $5 and $2 for your dog. We didn't have time to visit... More

This nature park is like being at the Ponderosa in the old Bonanza series, minus the Cartwrights of course. There is hiking, the Jordan Pond to fish, plenty of picnicking tables and of course the little red barn in the summer. Old farming equipment from the past is stored there too. Fun and natural beauty is there for everyone....check it... More

I live right over the hill from this park & I walk it at least 3x per week. It is well-maintained, and rangers try to stay out of the way, which is nice. Somehow it seems to attract mostly families and hikers. Thank goodness the dirt bags that like to raise hell & leave their garbage everywhere haven't yet discovered... More

I've been there several times over the years and always enjoyed the park for the picnicking etc, but recently learned of all the hiking trails that run through the park. Some of the views are great and with our almost always outdoor weather, even better!!

A pretty nice hiking area with a mixture of terrains (from Oak Woodland to grassy chaparral with some more densely wooded riparrian areas). Some of the hills have great views of the South East Bay Area and on clear days you can see the bridges and the bay. Get here early (~9 ish) to avoid the heat and sometime the... More

Garin park is one of Hayward's Gems. It's a great place to walk your dogs and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Parking at Dry Creek is free (trailhead off Mission Blvd). Garin charges for parking when booth is manned, and is at a higher elevation. Tolman Peak in... More
