This open and green space has turned to a brown and almost dust bowl. The drought in California has turned this quiet and green space into a sad setting. Adequate parking for the ABLE is close in and picnic setting for groups of 2 to 100 are available. Easy to play games with large groups on the open lawns. Currently... More

This place is the most fun in the fall when they have the apple tasting - they have a small heirloom orchard. Its a lot of up and down, its a ridge after all, but the views are beautiful and the sense of being outside, really outside, but not far from an urban environment is great.

This is a nice and relatively unknown park. You can stay in the main area or head on up into the hills in most directions. Look out, though, or you might run into some cows. There are some great hikes through here, but it is not much of a mountain biking park.

Scenery fantastic but make sure you bring your water. Always take my puggle for a hike there. She enjoys it a lot.

Away from city life even though you are not that far from the city. I do not like that they charge for using the park if you have a car.

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!!
