This neighborhood park is very well done and of all the parks we visited it had the widest array of visitors.  Of course there were the families, but there were also a fair number of business people in suits carrying their bagged lunch.  They dotted the numerous tables, enjoying the peaceful setting and the relative privacy of the park.

Amenities include a large children's play area, picnic and grilling facilities, horseshoe pits and a basketball court.  There is also an indoor recreation facility and restrooms.

Directions:
From the 101 take Johnson Avenue.  At the Ralston Street lights, turn right.  The park is to your right.  It can be easy to miss because it's up a hilly embankment and is very close to the intersection.
