While there's not a park as amazing as Central Park in NYC, IMHO, this is a fantastic park in the South Bay. It's a wonderful spot for large BBQs or kids birthday parties. They even have a kiddie train that adults can ride on, though I'm not sure when it runs. And of course, it's great for picnics with your loved one. You'll find a lot of people taking a stroll along the lake, and there are lots of runners, people walking their dogs and bikers on the trail. You can also spot turtles swimming near the ducks in the lake. Too bad the lake is too dirty to swim in. Unfortunately, when I was there last, there weren't any paddle boats available, because that would've been a fun thing to do as well.
Note: There is a $6 parking fee, but don't let that deter you from coming. Support and conserve this county park!

My favorite picnic location in the bay area. this park is huge and have many nice shaded places you can come to with friends and family. you can rent a small boat at the lake, or just enjoy the great weather this place offers for most of the year.

This park is at the two thirds point of the Los Gatos Creek Trail and has something for everyone in the family. The kids can ride the train that goes throughout the park and adults have a lot of areas to go biking or paddleboard on a boat. The park is spacious, close to downtown Los Gatos and offers a lot of picnic areas.

A pretty huge park in Los Gatos...there is a bunch of open space with grass and trails you can take walks on. They also have a carousal and a train you can take your kids to ride on, as well as a lake with paddle boats.
A great place to take the kids or go on a picnic with a date.

Beautiful lake. Lots of BBQ and picnic area.
I would love this park more if not for all the geese droppings. You really need to be careful because these landmines are everywhere!
Nice paved road around the lake perfect for strolling, biking, running. The park is dog friendly too. It is a great place to walk your furry friend.
