The First Saturday of each month is when the Adobe and Museum are open from 11:00am-2:00pm. They are small, easy to visit, and free. Wonderful! You will learn much about the settling of this land in the 1840s, and see many local artifacts. If you like, go on into the park and enjoy a walk. There is an entrance fee... More

Bike riding, mountain bike trails, hiking trails, dog park, kiddie park. The lagoon is a great place to walk or run. This is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. The hike to the tower is a challenge. As a resident in Vacaville, I frequent here several times a week! Frisbee golf, horseback, horseshoes, picnic benches. I have seen people... More

I love taking hikes with my girls here. Always enjoy the fresh air and the people around you. The workout is nice and since it is local it makes it even better for a great workout before work.

They have a great walking / bike trail leading into the park if you don't want to drive there. Lot's of joggers, walkers and hikers hitting the trails around the pond. You have a Dog Park, Frisbee Golf Course, Pick Nick and BBQ areas. Fishing is limited to a few sun fish with worms. A good place near the city... More

Pena Adobe is a gorgeous place to walk, hike, or bike. They have a dog park as well. The walk to "Heaven" will give you quite a workout and takes you up above the sound levels of traffic whizzing nearby on I-80. Enjoy the peace and quiet ...

I love Pena Adobe park! Its a gorgeous park, plenty of trails that branch off a main paved road. Free parking if you exit Alamo, heading towards Guns and Fishing, and keep driving down that road until you reach the end. Signs mark where you can park, and following the paved road brings you right to the Lagoon. It can... More

You can park in the main entrance and easily end up waling around the lagoon, see the ducks, there's a doggy park as well as places for kids to play. Disk golf, horseback riding, archery or just walk/run/bike around! OR you can walk up and up and up (vertical hiking that takes my breath away...literally) - and then the view... More
