A friend showed me a few photos of this park and I had to see it. The park is located off Big Break Road, north of Raley's Shopping Center, in Oakley. The ground is flat and the trails and sidewalks are an easy walk. It's a nice place for seniors and young families to visit. It's part of the East Bay Park District. It offers free parking, bathrooms, sand box and plenty of tables to eat a lunch or picnic. There is a science center is open Wednesday through Sunday 10-4 PM. Also after a short walk you will find a pretty good sized observation deck. It's a nice little walk and no fees.
