This is a fantastic park... I've gone here since I was a kid. They have a small gauge train that goes around the park. It's super fun around Halloween when they decorate spooky woods... Vason a portion has a nice lake.

Big or little kids, there’s lots to do at Vasona. Perfect for a cycle on the Los Gatos Creek Trail, you can rent paddle boats or stand up paddle boards.
