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.

Completely unacceptable behavior by the staff. Here's my email to them: Hello, My entire family was very disappointed by the behavior shown by your staff who were directing traffic at the Fantasy of Lights in Los Gatos. Our pre-purchased ticket was for 6-6:30pm and we arrived about 10 minutes early. We followed the signs for "Event Route" and at the... More

My wife and I had a good time walking thru the Los Gatos Fantasy of Lights on Sunday, December 4, 2016. This was our first time walking. We joined 2 other couples, one of which had 2 little ones and a stroller. We got our 7 tickets early thru the Santa Clara Parks website as the event sells out quickly.... More

Vasona Park is a great park. They have a lot of playground equipment for kids. There is also a great trail for exercise. The lake is beautiful. It is also a great park for picnics.
