Vasona is a great place to visit for walking or a picnic. There are two large playgrounds, a little train that goes around part of the park and an "old time" carousel. We rode the train every time we went to the park when my kids were young. There are plenty of places to picnic and plenty of walking trails.... More

This park is one of the best features of living in Los Gatos, I come here year round with my dog and ride my bike through the well groomed trails. Summer is superb with the Shakespeare plays and movie nights as well as the boating fun on the lake. Winter is good also as it is not as crowded.

Vasona Lake County Park has something for everyone, there is a train, carousel, play areas for big and small, group picnic areas, large open fields, fishing pond, paddle boats, trails and plenty of trees to find a shady area. In the summer one may find the science camp, and in the winter there is the Festival of Lights. Make it... More

Vasona is a lovely park. You can stroll or bike around the lake, but you can also rent boats, including paddle boards. There is plenty of space for picnicking and relaxing. Vasona Lake County Park connects to Oak Meadow Park in Los Gatos. Just beyond where the two parks meet, is the Billy Jones Railroad and a historic carousel. They... More

Clean and easy to park. Great place for children. This park needs separate paths for bicyclists and walkers. Some of the bikes go over the speed limit. Some bicyclists do not announce they are approaching walkers and many walkers are seniors and could have hearing losses. Lots of families on the weekends.

The running trail is very long and scenic with lots of shade, running by the lake with lots of people watching, birds, water fountains and places to picnic. Check out train for the kids and water sports in the lake.

A beautiful Park with walking trails around the lake to the Los Gatos Creek Trail where you can walk or bike for miles. This park has some of the best picnic BBQ areas in the Silicon Valley and can also accommodate groups as well. Don't miss the Bily Jones railroad or the carousel. A fun way to enjoy the Summer...

Explore nature at the edge of Silicon Valley. Shady riparian walking paths, paddle boat rentals, well maintained playgrounds and even a small gauge railroad and lovingly restored Merry-go-round carousel to delight young and old.

I walk through this park on average twice a week. It offers picnic areas, playground areas, fields to run and play. You can rent kayaks, paddle boats, and stand up paddles during the summer. They have a music concert series on Saturday nights as well in the summer. A lot of birds live here as well, Blue Herons nest here,... More

There are lots of picnic grounds although you need to reserve the large ones. Big open fields to run, bike trails run through the park as well. Great playground for the kids, and also a small train and carousel for a fee. Bathrooms are available around the park and if it is a sunny day, I recommend renting a paddle... More
