Big or little kids, there’s lots to do at Vasona. Perfect for a cycle on the Los Gatos Creek Trail, you can rent paddle boats or stand up paddle boards.

There is some much space to walk around & you're next door to Oak Meadow Park that has the train & merry-go-round.

Best place in town to spend quality time with the fur baby. Great well maintained train. Even though there are people around, during the week, it offer a nice long walk with no pedestrian traffic. Amazing it's in the middle of the Valley.

Sorry. I do not know the answer to that because when I went to the park, I walked there using the Los Gatos Trail. When you walk to the park using the Los Gatos Trail, there is no entrance fee.
