We went there with family and friends. The little "choo choo' trein is a nice activity for kids but be prepared to wait at least half an hour. The park is big and there are some swings and stuff for kids. You can also reserve a bbq spot (we didn't). there are some snacks (cheap) but you can't really make... More

Possibly the best park in the region. Plenty of places for picnics. Beautiful scenery. Clean public bathrooms. Tons of open space for throwing a football or a frisbee. Dogs okay on leash. Barbecue grills. Visited this park before Lake operations start it up for the season. Still plenty of stuff to do. Convenient parking will cost you around $6. This... More

This park is so unique and well kept. I take my international friends here for outdoor activities, for picnics and lovely walks before getting on to planes to fly for 8-10 hours, gets them relaxed and lots of memories of their visit to our heaven here in San Jose.

Great park for either running or biking (except crowded weekends), BBQing, boating or just walking. Super green with a little lake and a river, lots of paved trails, benches, and trees.

Vasona Lake County Park provides several pleasures. On a sunny afternoon it is very relaxing to just stroll around the park. There are strategically placed benches to sit on to rest, read a good book for a while, or chat with a friend. It's very quiet except for the occasional bird. If you want a little more actiity, there are... More

Vasona Lake County Park is a green spot of relief in busy Silicon Valley. It's a wonderful place of peace and quiet, yet there are playgrounds for children and ducks to feed. It's a good place to walk and rejuvenate oneself. It's also a great place for a picnic -- and if you're lucky, to take part in the Persian... More

Beautiful place for walking, hiking, biking, have a picnic, observe birds and amazing nature. Calm, comfortable place with necessary amenities and parking. Highly recommend to rent a catamaran in warm sunny day to join ducks and other beatiful birds on the Vasona lake. Children will be happy to take a ride on the cartoon-style train. Happy to live nearby.

Large and well-maintained park with lovely views of surrounding hills (oh, please keep the housing off the ridge lines!) with lots of different areas for walking, sitting, exercising. Always different aspects to explore.
