Acalanes Ridge
Sousa Dr.,
Walnut Creek, CA 94597

Open space on 202 acres offering 4 miles of dog-friendly trails with panoramic views.

“This is my new go to walking spot! Overall it’s a fairly mild hike, nothing too strenuous. My dog is 16 so he can’t handle too difficult of a hike and this one is perfect for him. He can make it down the Sousa trail to the water plant and back. Several trails and cool views to see. It’s totally a little hidden gem. I live in the Larkey neighborhood and was looking for somewhere new to take my dog and it’s easy access for me, others might find it hard because there’s not a lot of parking and it’s almost all residential. I still highly recommend this place!!” – Nick

Arbolado Park
Arbolado Dr.,
Walnut Creek, CA 94598

Park with sports fields, tennis courts & open grassy areas, plus a playground & picnic tables.

“Very nice park with spacious grassy area and trees so it was easy to stay away from other people. Playground looked nice but of course is still closed so hopefully my daughter will get to experience it soon once they reopen.” -Brian

Heather Farm Park
301 N San Carlos Dr.,
Walnut Creek, CA

This is a 102-acre preserve featuring playgrounds, a dog park, walking the paths, a swim center, skate park and sports fields.

“Great park with shade, green grass, and enough space to comfortably find a space for yourself and those you’re with!” – Tobiah

Diablo Foothills Regional Park
1700 Castle Rock Rd.,
Walnut Creek, CA 94598

Diablo Foothills is a gateway to the beautiful parklands of Mt Diablo State Park and Walnut Creek Open Space. “The Foothills 1,060 acres are valued for their striking geologic formations, their sweeping panoramas of the San Francisco Bay Region and the rural quality of the adjacent rolling grasslands.”

“Beautiful scenery with creeks, trees, wildlife, and hills to climb. Some parts are hilly but other than that, it’s an easy going hike. Definitely bring water regardless if you’re going in the morning or mid-day. Enjoy your hike!” -Kiefer

Walden Park
2698 Oak Rd.,
Walnut Creek, CA 94597

A small park located in Walnut creek. It features a nice playground for the kids, plus a picnic area.

“Beautiful park. We were there midweek from 11:30 to 1 pm . We had enough parking at that time for two cars and we got a shady picnic table. There is a small disc course and bathrooms.” -Glenna

Civic Park
1375 Civic Dr.,
Walnut Creek

10-acre park with gardens, picturesque views & a community center & gazebo used for weddings.

“Civic Park is Downtown Walnut Creek’s recreational skeleton key for tons of fun stuff: The library, the Canal Trail, Ceramics classes, the Dog Park, downtown shopping and dining, etc. We always start there and have a great day.” – Laura

“Connects to a large trail, has a field, has shaded areas, has exercise equipment, is located next to a library, and is near by tasty places. Also has parking.” – Jam
