Parks, Trails and Open Space

The City of Pleasanton offers 42 community and neighborhood parks, approximately 24 miles of trails and over 800 acres of undeveloped open space.

Parks:  Community parks are intended for community-wide use, and feature a variety of amenities.  A neighborhood park is intended to serve the immediate neighborhood, but is open for use by the general public, and has limited amenities.  Many neighborhood parks are located within ½ mile of the residential neighborhoods they serve, which is a goal in the City’s General Plan.  Parks are as small as 1/3 acre (Veterans Plaza Park in the Downtown area) and as large as 104 acres (Sports and Recreation Community Park).  The City also has Augustin Bernal Park, a 237-acre natural jewel in the park system.  You will want to visit the fully restored interpretive Alviso Adobe Park which reveals the history of the Amador Valley and a rare glimpse of times past.  City of Pleasanton parks offer unique features, such as a BMX Facility on Stanley Boulevard near Shadow Cliffs.  Click Here to see a list of park locations and amenities.

No Smoking Near Playgrounds and Tot Lots:   As a community, the City of Pleasanton wants to make sure all children are healthy and safe in its parks.  We take this opportunity to remind you that smoking or disposing of tobacco-related products within 25 feet of a playground or tot lot is prohibited by State Health and Safety Code 104495.  The fine for violation of this Code is $250 for each offense.

Operation Services Department - Parks Maintenance Division:  The Division maintains all 42 parks, City trails, and open space, as well as all City street trees, landscaping along City streets and around City government buildings.  For more information on the Division, Click Here.  To report park problems or to request service, please call (925) 931-5565.

Trails:  There are approximately 24 miles of trails within Pleasanton for the community's enjoyment, including 3 miles of new trails around the Callippe Preserve Golf Course and 1 additional mile segment of the regional Iron Horse Trail.

The Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Committee assists the Parks and Recreation Commission and the City’s Traffic Engineering Division by:  providing input and direction on bicycle and pedestrian issues; offering recommendations for new bicycle and trails-related projects; advising in developing and implementing trail policies; advising on activities by other entities that may impact Pleasanton’s trails; assisting in maintaining community awareness about the importance of bicycle and pedestrian paths, trails and routes.   The Committee usually meets on the fourth Monday of each month.  To see the latest meeting agenda or summary, click on the appropriate links.  If you would like to share an idea, comment or concern regarding existing or future trails, please Click Here to send us an e-mail.
