There is some much space to walk around & you're next door to Oak Meadow Park that has the train & merry-go-round.

Best place in town to spend quality time with the fur baby. Great well maintained train. Even though there are people around, during the week, it offer a nice long walk with no pedestrian traffic. Amazing it's in the middle of the Valley.

This park has a mini steam train for kids. Kayak, paddle-board, and pedal boat rentals. If you rent bikes on Main, you can take the Los Gatos Creek Trail all the way into the park.

I was visiting my BFF in Los Gatos recently, and we took her kids here on a beautiful afternoon. Loved the playgrounds, the train ride, the clean facilities and snack bar. If I lived nearby I would go all the time!

Sorry. I do not know the answer to that because when I went to the park, I walked there using the Los Gatos Trail. When you walk to the park using the Los Gatos Trail, there is no entrance fee.
