“45 acres of fun!”

Vasona Park includes 45 acres of lawn which can be used for informal play such as frisbee tossing, softball or soccer. There are several picnic areas available on a first-come, first-served basis. Eight reservable group areas are placed at scenic locations throughout the park. Paddle boats and row boats are available for rental from early spring through early fall. Check out Los Gatos Recreation for more information! The lake also offers fishing for Black Bass, Crappie, Catfish and Blue Gill. The Youth Science Institute, located at the park's north end, offers programs and outings which interpret science and inspire an appreciation for the natural environment. Behind YSI, visitors can find solitude while hiking the Viola Anderson Native Plant Trail.

Adjacent to Vasona Park is the Town of Los Gatos'' Oak Meadow Park. Here, visitors can ride a carousel, picnic, play informal sports, or enjoy the playground. Miniature train rides on the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad originate in Oak Meadow and run through Vasona Park.Hikers, runners, bicyclists, and skaters enjoy the Los Gatos Creek multiple use trail which begins at Lexington Reservoir and follows the Los Gatos Creek for nearly 14 miles through the Town of Los Gatos, Vasona Lake County Park, Los Gatos Creek County Park, and the cities of Campbell and San Jose.Call boxes are located along the trail. Dogs are welcome on a leash and owners are expected to pick up droppings. Free disposable scoopers are available.At the midpoint of the trail is Los Gatos Creek County Park, an 80-acre urban park encompassing six percolation ponds.

The northernmost pond is used for fishing. This pond is stocked with Rainbow Trout from November through April. Black Bass, Catfish, Blue Gill, Crappie and Carp are also caught in the pond. The remaining ponds offer visitors the opportunity to view many types of water fowl. Please note that feeding water fowl is prohibited. Casting ponds are also available, open to the public daily from 8:00 a.m. to sunset for fly and plug casting. Targets are available for accuracy practice. No hooks or dogs allowed within the casting area. Use caution when walking in the "back cast" area.
