Great park for either running or biking (except crowded weekends), BBQing, boating or just walking. Super green with a little lake and a river, lots of paved trails, benches, and trees.

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.

I have never paid an entrance fee. There is plenty of parking on the streets surrounding the park and we just walk in.

Yes it is dog friendly. There is a dog park along the trail in Campbell. All dogs are required to be on leash when outside the dog park. Be advised that trails are heavily used by runners, walkers and bicyclists.
