We really enjoyed Garin Park. We had a wonderful walk through the trails and paths, then we had a picnic lunch at the tables there. We wandered over to the barn and walked into living history. It reminded me of my past, and smelled of leather and hay. We had a great time walking through this very peaceful park. I... More

Great place for picnic or just a walk. Hard to believe that this rustic and rural park is only a few miles from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area.

Garin has spectacular views of surrounding area, on clear day can see across bay. Dirt trails outline the hill, multiple challenging routes to take. Paths are shared with horses and sometimes you need to watch where you step.

I've been going to Garin Park all my life and I continue coming here because it is a nice little escape from all the noise. At night it is a little scary (I definitely suggest going in a larger group). There's really so much you can do: strenuous hike (that big hill at the entrance), moderate hike (the hills to... More

Garin Park is one of numerous regional parks, easily accessible from Hayward and other nearby towns. For now, with private land above, the hiking trails mostly circle back to the major tralheads, and don't reach the major ridge above. Some areas, especially on weekends, can get crowded. That includes the main picnic areas, and the obvious trails above. Other trails,... More

We enjoyed visiting this combination regional park of Garin/Dry Creek. For Garin, there is a wonderful hike to the top of the hills to see a stunning view of San Francisco Bay. There is also a barn, farm equipment, and nice places for a picnic. There is lots of trails. We also liked Dry Creek in particular the garden area... More

Beautiful regional park open everyday. Open green space to picnic, barbecue, walk or just relax. It has amazing views of the whole bay area. me and my family love it. during the weekdays no fee to enter. On the weekend I believe there is a small fee just to park the car.

You can hike, picnic, ride a bike, fly a kite, ride a horse or just kick back and enjoy the picture perfect scenery. If... More

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.
