Most of my experienc s have been while performing with WCCB band - it’s a nice inter-city park with several different areas to visit - ie over the bridge. Bathrooms really need an update and expansion to accommodate the needs of a busy park

Playground is a favorite place to take kids. A nice array of play equipment without being overwhelming or overly complicated. Good picnic areas and adjacent to the public library. Grounds are nice place to stroll for all ages.

Walnut Creek is hardly a town any longer, except you can walk the most exceptional portion of the city and get small town friendliness, from the Civic Park which is across from City Hall, next to a beautiful library that features art exhibits, movie showings,...More

Nothing special, but it's always goog to have a park in a densely-developed area. Could use a better design.
