Located at the corner of Dan Niemi Way and E 14th streets, this park opened in May 1996. The park features an attractive and comfortable green space in downtown San Leandro. In addition to sitting areas and garden beds, the park provides unique access to San Leandro Creek, where the natural environment may be studied and appreciated. It is used by local science classes for nature study. Picnic areas at this park are available for reservation from April 1 through October 31. Daily park operational hours are from 8 am to 7 pm.
