One can easily spend a full day here. It has something for everyone. The best i like is canoeing on the lake. One less point because of the parking fee. Best things in the universe are free or near free - like the sky, the ocean, the air, spirituality and this tripadvisor portal. Anything more than $2 for parking here... More

Always a great place to go with family and friends... or even alone to relax. We walk our dog here regularly. We also love the boating, music nights and birdwatching. It's hard to find a better place for taking pictures of nature too.

Leisurely walks around a small lake. Lots of birds, ducks, etc. Gets very crowded on weekends. You can also rent small boats and go out. Lots of walkers and bikers. Take your sunglasses, not a lot of shade if you are walking.

Vasona Park is a gem of a park. During the summer months it is brimming with activity from rowing or paddle boats to cycling around the park to picnics and playground activities. Please be sure to check hours of operations of all activities as most water activities don't fully operate til summer. The Billy Jones railroad and carousel are on... More

Easy access to train, BBQ spots and to Los Gatos Creek Trail. Weekend go early or make reservations for kids parties. Parking is limited so plan ahead. Great summer events. Go to SCC parks to see schedule.

What a beautiful public area! I was visiting Los Gatos and walking along the Los Gatos Creek trail and came upon the park. Beautifully maintained, safe( no gang activity...just honest hard working normal law abiding families enjoying the outdoors), no grafitti on the walls or the playgrounds..again just honest hard working law abiding peaceful people everywhere..no MS 13 or Latin...

Vasona is a bucolic and expansive park that surrounds a lake where kids can paddle board and watch the ducks. There is a miles long running trail that goes around it, and picnic areas that can be reserved in advance. Park on the street to avoid the fee.

Vasona Park is a special memory for me. I use to fish the creek and the ponds back in the early 60's before it became the attraction it is today. Back then, the Billy Jones Railroad was still located on the corner of Davis Ave and Winchester Blvd where my friend lived with his grandfather Billy Jones. We use to... More

We have been here countless times. It is a cute park. There are canoe and kayak rentals. BBQ pits and picnic tables. A merry-go-round and a train. There are a couple playgrounds and it is on Los Gatos Creek Trail. You can spend several hours here but I would suggest bringing your own snacks, they have a snack bar but... More
