This park is a great place to walk for an hour or two. Big Lake. Some shady paths. Very secure. If you're a senior, get a Senior Pass to avoid the $6 parking fee.

Loved the Bands in the park event Saturday! Big turn out and everyone dancing including the kids. Plenty of room to run around and lounge. Parking was a challenge though

This is a nice park with a lake you can fish in for bass or catfish. We've had several bar-b-q parties here and the scenery is very nice. They also rent paddle boats which are always fun.

Stopped in quick to check it out while in town for a wedding. 6 bucks to park, no problem. I guess you could park for free in the surrounding area and walk in. Lots of activities. Also, there was a random GTE phonebooth in the middle of the park. Very random and very 1994.

We love going to Vasona Park for their holiday Fantasy of Lights in December. You drive through the park seeing magical Christmas lighted scenes. Its so fun. The other times of the year it is fun to visit the park for picnics and outside fun.

I used to live in the San Jose area in the 60/70/80's, and our kids would go to the 'airplane' park many times. We would also have picnics in the main lake/park area. Living out of the area for some time, and returned for a reunion party. We were immediately taken back by all the geese and their stuff they... More
