The lush hills and meadows of McLaren Park located in the southernmost part of the City are hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Athletic Fields and Playgrounds
McLaren Park offers many recreational amenities for families. Most are situated around the three primary areas: the Louis Sutter Playground, the Herz Playground, and the Tennis Complex. Louis Sutter Playground near the corner of University and Woolsey Streets provides the largest area of recreational facilities including: a community clubhouse, two baseball diamonds, two tennis courts, a full-size basketball court, two modern play areas for children, a junior soccer field, and 16 tables for picnicking.
Hiking and Jogging
For years, lots of people have been using McLaren Park's vast network of trails for hiking, walking, and jogging. The system is composed of seven miles of improved trails throughout the park and an array of unimproved rock trails on the park's southern slopes.
There are 75 tables for picnickers throughout the park, some in remote locations for visitors looking for quiet and serenity, while others are located in the playgrounds. There are two large picnic sites at the Group Picnic Area located on the north leg of Shelley Drive.
Jerry Garcia Ampitheater
This open-air amphitheater is a six-sided structure with the seating capacity of 600 and room for additional hundreds on the grassy slopes. In the summer, Jerry Day is celebrated here along with summer camps hosted by Shakespeare in the Park.
The park is located at the southeastern end of the City. Plenty of parking available.
