Love to take my family for a walk there. Little ones could use schooters. There are 2 play grounds in the park and kids train operating on weekends. Olson great for a family cycling trip, no hills there.

Very serene and scenic. Very accessible, near major highways and major streets. You exit to Los Gatos downtown for good food and drinks after your hike or run. Not very long trail but enough for a good exercise.
