“Beautiful park with a small lake - great for kids too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This park has it all. A small lake where you can rent paddle boats in the summertime, ducks and geese, nice play equipment with swings etc, nice walking paths, and is connected to Oak Meadow Park where you can take a small train ride and merry go round ride. I think they cost $1 a ride, but I'm not positive. Parking is $5.

“Intact natural beauty not very far from city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Me and my wife went there for the Iranian nature Day ( Near the Easter Day). We had a perfect day in this park.
If you want to get there , At first consider that all roads here are not very wide , therefore try do not miss one because there are far from each other ! we did twice!
There are a plenty of parking space around here Don't worry.It needs fee to enter parking but it is not so much.
There is an old train in the park for children and also facilities for boating near the dam area.
but in the rest of park you can touch nature and also beautiful wild birds in green grass and jungle.
Therefore do not miss it at all.

“My favorite walking spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

There is always something to see while walking at Vasona. The only drawback is the extreme amount of goose guano as you walk around. But, after all, you are going into nature. And nature isn't tidy. (*Tip) If you're a Los Gatos resident, you can park for free in the first lot. See you there.
