Worth the drive: Heather Farm Park and Playground in Walnut Creek

The unique feature of the Heather Farm playground in Walnut Creek is a set of artificial-turf covered mounds that children can slide down on sheets of cardboard. The park is a great destination for all ages. From a stroller-friendly walk around the pond to a well-placed bench for grandparents to sit, it has a lot to offer, and as it's only a few years old, it's all in tip-top condition.

When I visited with a mom friend, we had with us a three-year old who enjoyed all the climbing and sliding opportunities for her age group; a pair of seven-year old girls who conquered all the tunneled curvy slides and the snowboarding opportunities offered by the hills; and ten-year old boys who shot baskets at the adjacent courts.

After a couple of hours on the playground, my friend and I lead the kids to scooter a few laps around the lake, and finally visited the botanical gardens, which they found boring, but might be better appreciated by toddlers who want to touch every plant as they walk by.

  1. Looks cool. We used to bask in the sun by the pool at Heather Farms before we had kids. It’s also a starting point for Iron Horse trail. If only Walnut Creek closer…

  3. Heather Farm Park has it all! An Olympic size swimming pool, wide open green spaces, an awesome kids playground, rose garden, trails, pond, picnic tables and even a dog park tucked away. They have some great tennis courts and soccer fields as well.
