The park was huge, lots of very large picnic pavillions, very clean and easy to park next to while unloading our car. The train that circles arounds is really cool and the kids and adults liked it! A fun place to celebrate an outdoor occasion!

Many different birds, squirrels, bunnies, fish! The place teams with wildlife. Many people just out enjoying walking, jogging, boating, fishing, biking. Many people in groups playing games like soccer, volleyball, etc. A wonderful oasis.

There is usually lots of parking, except perhaps in summer when summer camps around the nature center at the back of the park and near the sailing center compete with large summer picnic groups for parking. Spring, fall, and winter: easy peasy parking for about $6. Nice lake with egrets, ducks, coots, seagulls, and geese, herons. They do a good... More

We enjoyed returning to see the Christmas and dinosaur decorations at Vasona Lake Park. This year one needed to make reservations on line, choosing a specific date and time to drive through the park. The lights are so magical. One can turn on a radio station while there to listen to Christmas Music. I have attached a few pictures to... More

Plenty of room to spread out a blanket and have a picnic. Hot dogs and drinks are available for purchase if you want. BEST OF ALL there is a wonderful carousel/merry-go-round and... More

Running the Los Gatos trail through Vasona park is always great. Very flat and paved. You can run ~16 miles round trip if you leave from Los Gatos High school field to Meridian Avenue.
