Photo walk @ Vasona Lake

Vasona Lake Park and Oak Meadow Park are joined together by a short walkway along the Los Gatos Creek. A morning spent at the two is wonderful! At Vasona Lake Park there are geese galore and a large standard play structure. Amazing tall pines surround you. A stream bubbles below a bridge.

Follow the stream north and you will come to the lake, with paddle boats in the summer. Or follow signs to the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad and you will be on the Los Gatos Creek trail. The creek is gorgeous, with lovely trees that flower at different times of year. Sit by the creek for a moment and listen.

If you walk a little you come to Oak Meadow Park, which is the best part of all! There is a railroad to ride and a carousel and a huge lawn with a pretty gazebo. Little picnic areas are dotted about on hills amongst pines. There's a decommissioned jet plane for kids to climb into and ride! My toddler spent most of the time here. There is also a pretend fire engine and train and a standard playground with slides. This is a fantastic park filled with happy people and the whole family will have a blast!

Dogs are allowed here on leash in the grassy areas and on the Los Gatos Creek Trail, but not by the playground.

If your child likes trains, half an hour from here, take a train ride at Roaring Camp Railroads through the incredible redwood forest. It's magnificently beautiful!

    I was planning on riding my bike up through Los Gatos Creek Trail, so I may not be there by 8am. I will keep my eyes open for a gaggle of photographers.

      Sounds good! Vasona lake is ideal for biking! We'll be on the lookout for you too! A guy on a bike with a camera shouldn't be hard to detect... :)

    I'm going to this one for the geese! Hey, Nidhi, this is my first RSVP, and I'm wondering if it's OK to pay my membership dues at the walk then? Thanks and I'm looking forward to it. The last time I was at Vasona was two years ago at the Rubber Duckie race.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
