We have enjoyed Tilden Park as a family for decades. Great hiking , great views and a place to be one with East Bay nature. Most places dog friendly.

Always an enjoyable time at Tilden Nature Park. No matter your age or fitness level, there is something to enjoy at TIlden. Lake Anza provides cool swimming and a nice beach. Hiking trails have great views of the bay.

This is a must go place if in the area or even worth crossing a bridge. Great for walking/hiking and even driving around. Much better to get out of the car and walk around.

I grew up living near this very large Regional park. It has many features for families, including a merry go round, little train ride, farm, horse rides, a swimming lake, caves to climb and explore(dangerous!), a botanical garden, a golf course, and miles of trails.
