“A great place to enjoy the day!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

One of many community parks located in Concord, CA, Newhall Community Park has a personality all of its own that draws families and friends from all around the area. If you're a "dog-lover" a recently installed dog park, open to the public, every day but Wednesdays is the place for you and your dog to run and play. If walking is your interest, a gravel trail that circles the lawn areas of the park for approximately 1 mile is an enjoyable walk but will give you a challenge. It's a good hike! A newly installed children's play area near the main parking area is the newest attraction for Newhall Park. A fairly secluded picnic grotto at one end of the park, away from the road and traffic and sheltered from noise can be used for any occasion. Reservations and a small fee are required in advance for use of this area.

On many an evening during the Summer, Newhall Community Park welcomes groups playing volleyball, baseball, and most popular, soccer. Week-ends can find Newhall Park busy with activity between the many soccer games, track meets, kite flying, dog walking, and of course, Bocce Ball games. Newhall Park's Bocce Ball Court is a few years old, but quite impressive to say the least. If the amount of attendees means anything, Newhall Park's Bocce Ball Court is the place to be!

So whether it is solitude you want, or you're interested in distance walking, or even want to plan an all-day event, Newhall Community Park on Turtle Creek Road in Concord, CA is the perfect location for any occasion. It is highly recommended!

“Great place to have an event”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The City of Concord has several park areas available for event rental. This park (in my opinion) is the best.
The grove is a little lower than the street so you atr protected from noise. The city does a great job maintaining the park.

You need to make sure that you have somebody at the site early on the day of the event. If you have it rented you will be able to use it, but it may take time to get someone removed after they set-up. The city will assist and remove interlopers, but its better to not let them squat in the first place.
