“good Hike for Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We went hiking on Sunday with my nephews scout group.We started the hike from the Little farm and went upto the peak .It was a clear day and we had great sightings of the Goldengate Bridge from the Top.The total hike took about an hour and is perfect to go with kids.It is moderately straneous but the views keep you going.It Can get a little slippery if it has rained.On the way back we stopped at the farm and the kids loved seeing the farm animals and also fed the cows.
We then went to the nature center where the history of the valley is explained very well.It also has the a lot of information on the flaura and fauna of the place.On the way out we saw park rangers holding some snakes.The kids learnt a lot about the snakes and also got to hold them. Good hike and park to visit with Kids.

“Train ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Took the steam train on a cold blustery day. The ride was just long enough and my five year old loved it, even though he has ridden this train hundreds of times.

One of the best reasons for living in the East Bay are the many Regional Parks along the hills. Tilden Park has Hiking, Mountain Biking, Picnicking all among the stunning views of the Bay Area.

“Large city park in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Tilden gives city dwellers a lovely escape to eucalyptus-scented hills, picnic sites, a public swimming lake and a children's "farm". Adjoining regional parks expand hiking opportunities north and south. But as in the city, not all participants enhance the experience of others. Security measures attempt to counteract graffiti or destructive practices. Still, visitors must be observant at all times, for instance parking and locking their vehicle in a well-observed spot. Friends last winter walked to the lake, 3-5 minutes from the car, only to hear the burglar alarm and rush back to find a window smashed and their valuables robbed.
