I was visiting my BFF in Los Gatos recently, and we took her kids here on a beautiful afternoon. Loved the playgrounds, the train ride, the clean facilities and snack bar. If I lived nearby I would go all the time!

This park is a great biking destination for families with younger kids. The lake provides for boating, fishing, but not really swimming.
