“A big park with a road just over 2 miles that you can bike, run, or walk. Also has a huge dog park in it, right next to the historic Observatory. There are also tons of trails through the woods if you're feeling more adventurous, a playground, swimming pool, and tennis courts.”

“Here is another hidden gem and one of the most magnificent views of the city bar none. Located at the sharp turn at Baily Avenue (right, it's nowhere near Grandview Ave) it's one of those places you could totally miss if you didn't know it was there. Lot of activities here, yoga classes, movies in the park, and more. Lots of benches for relaxing Seems to be a park a lot of people bring their dogs for walking The view of downtown, it's buildings, the rivers, and even Oakland is one of the best in town. Parking can be hard, as it's street parking. Best to walk to the park.”
