Dusterberry Neighborhood Park in Fremont: A New Place to Play

Fremont folks will be happy to know that Dusterberry Neighborhood Park is now open and ready for your little climbers to explore.

Thanks to our on-the-ground parents Kelly and Parul for braving the Grand Opening event hosted by the City of Fremont to get us the intel. If you would like to submit a playground recommendation, send photos and descriptions to info@510families.com.

Fremont’s Dusterberry Park Features

The new playground for school-aged kids is part of a large four-acre park located on the corner of Dusterberry Way and Peralta Boulevard.

Location: Dusterberry Way and Peralta Blvd. in Fremont near the Fremont DMV.
Unique Features of Playground: sophisticated climbing structure area for 5-12 year-olds with three large tube slides, a large climbing net pyramid (pictured above), a multi-use field, and walking paths. A small nature play area invites little ones to climb on boulders and ride down smaller slides.
Surfaces: turf, “plexipave” basketball court, grass, and paths.

Shade: There are a couple of shade canopy structures installed over seating areas to compensate for a lack of trees at the park.
Swings: A variety of swings includes an inclusive swing for differently abled bodies and something we’ll call “companion swings” that allow a parent to swing along with a toddler in a bucket seat. Pretty cool!
Fenced in? Not really. There is a wooden fence along the perimeter but it is along a very busy stretch of road.
Bathroom: Nope!

Lunch tables & seating: A low wall offers lots of seating for parent observers and a couple of picnic tables are available for eating.
Parking: Somewhat limited
Other features at the park: Bring a basketball if you’d like to practice shooting on the half-court, and bring a stomp rocket if you’ll want to enjoy the large open grassy area.

Bottom Line on Dusterberry Neighborhood Park

This is a very large park – similar to the area’s Lake Elizabeth Sabercat Park – that will engage families for a nice half-day outing. Because it’s so expansive, you will want one adult per child, especially if they are different ages.

Since the equipment is brand new and the ground cover is freshly installed, Dusterberry Park is an appealing place to visit while all the colors are still bright.

The perimeter wood fence is not foolproof and it’s on a busy intersection, so we’ll summarize by suggesting this park is stimulating more than it is relaxing!

  1. I visited the park on Thursday, July 13th. It was hopping. My grandson is 8.5 years old and he had a wonderful time. Great climbing structures. The little ones will love the area for exploring that is still under construction. The companion swings are wonderful! My only suggestion would be a porta-potty. I know it is a “neighborhood” park and that was the logic behind no restrooms. But the reality is small children need bathrooms. And sometimes the bigger ones do too. I overheard two different bathroom requests which resulted in families leaving the park. A porta-potty would have solved this issue.

  2. Some fun water play for toddlers and older kids would have been great here. Hoping Fremont integrates some water play for kids.

  3. I actually like the concept of the “neighborhood park” having no bathrooms, parking, or lights keeping it from being overcrowded by visitors far from the area. The whole idea is you go when you’re home, and you walk to your neighborhood park. This is a positive feature, not a fault. The Dusterberry neighborhood had not lost its industrial vibe despite all the new housing until this park. We deserve our own little green space for our neighborhood.
