This park has a mini steam train for kids. Kayak, paddle-board, and pedal boat rentals. If you rent bikes on Main, you can take the Los Gatos Creek Trail all the way into the park.

I was visiting my BFF in Los Gatos recently, and we took her kids here on a beautiful afternoon. Loved the playgrounds, the train ride, the clean facilities and snack bar. If I lived nearby I would go all the time!
