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.

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.

I used to go on walks here with my Dad before he passed away. I lived very close to Vasona Park so we went every season. At night in the summer it was especially beautiful, and the lights show during the Christmas holidays are definitely worth a look! I also love wildlife and Vasona Lake Park is home to many... More

The playground is well-maintained as well as the facilities. There is filtered water available at one of the restrooms. This is my favorite place to walk any time of year.
