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

Vasona Park has everything a family could want in a park. There's of course the lake with fishing allowed at the north end or a launch for small boats, a shallow creek to wade in, plenty of trees for a shady lazy day. There is also plenty of room for a family baseball or football game, walking/biking trails, picnic areas... More

The park has something for everyone. Families with kids will enjoy the park, playground, creeks (when we have enough water), water activities and keeping away from the geese. Also, this is a great place to bike with your kids, walk your dog (must be on leashes), etc...

We loved the amount of shade provided throughout Vasona Lake County Park with so many different options to set up camp. It was a very busy day being the Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend, but even so, we had no trouble getting on the little train, nor hiring kayaks for a paddle on the lake. The carousel was only...

Great place to spend an afternoon -- walking, sitting. Busy place on the weekend; too many bikers on the paths.
