LAFAYETTE – We continue our monthly series highlighting the best parks in the Walnut Creek area with a tranquil and laid-back location in the hills of Lafayette. The 68-acre Lafayette Community Park is the perfect spot for your next family outing. Toddlers will love the shaded playground featuring interactive audio activities, and older kids will appreciate the swings and rock climbing structure. Two multi-use ball fields and an expansive lawn area provide little ones plenty of room to play and run. Covered picnic tables and clean restrooms make for an ideal setting for birthday parties or other celebrations. Explore beyond the park thanks to easy access to three miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
