A friend recommended that I check out this park, and we finally made it there a few weeks ago. Creekside Park in San Ramon is a fun little park, with two play areas; one for little kids, one for older kids. This is one of the few parks around that might actually be challenging for older (8+) kids to climb on. The structure also has a fun climbing wall. There isn’t much shade here, but the park has great views of the surrounding grassy hills.
Remember, the easiest way to enjoy some outside playtime is to head to your local park!
