Stevens Park has a fun playground and great creek for nature playing. It also has a trail at the back end of the grass field. For a very short trek, walk to the overpass and listen to the cars drive over you (only about 200 yards). Past here, a shady trail continues for about 1 mile. The path is wide and mainly flat, but there is a lot of poison oak nearby. This trail connects to the 7 mile Jesusita Trail if you are really feeling adventurerous. We hiked to the trail crossing which is about .5 miles up the trail.
Directions: From downtown, take 101 N to the Las Positas exit. Turn right onto Las Positas Rd and follow the road for about 1 mile. Turn left onto Calle Fresno and immediately right onto Canon Dr. The park is on the right,
