Coyote Hills Regional Park

Reviewed By Pixseal - Newark, California

There are a dozen miles of trails - from paved level paths to steep dirt trails. All of the paved paths are suitable for road cycling; many of the dirt paths are available for mountain biking. The bird life here is amazing - salt water birds, freshwater foul and tree dwellers. And a lot of seasonal foul.

I love sending my husband and children to IFly. The instructors are amazing teaching you how to maximize the jump experience. The price is inexpensive when you purchase your jump pass through Costco. The facility also has a monthly jump pass you can purchase along with personal instruction. I am getting this for my husband to use before work.

AMC NewPark 12

Reviewed By mariard - San Leandro, CA

This is supposed to be the newest and greatest theatre in the area BUT.....many movies will sell out or only have separate seats available before the showing. Also beware that their IMAX with reserved seating is not luxury loungers even though it is priced as it is. They are cushioned chairs and that is about it. They do have luxury loungers in some of their theatres at this location so just pay careful attention when purchasing your tickets. Have been not impressed more than impressed with this theatre! Very expensive. It does have a bar with alcohol and their snack bar is self serve, which is kind of weird and always messy.

Central Park

Reviewed By Bill M - Livermore, California

Central Park (Lake Elizabeth) is a huge recreational park easily accessible with multiple parking areas. Our primary visits are for softball with multiple lighted fields and most of the time a snack bar but there are large areas for a dog park, small rental boats, picnic tables, basketball, tennis, playgrounds and simply walking the trails. For all events the primary thing to watch for is what the geese leave on the ground for you. Even if you are not visiting for an organized event it is a great place for a family outing or simply a walk to get away from the stress of the day.

Mission Peak Regional Preserve

Reviewed By hikingsierra - Medford, Oregon

I hiked up the typical route and came down the Peak Road trail. The latter is steeper and longer. My Suunto sports watch said 5.54 miles forr the whole loop.

The main trail is heavily used, and I encountered several parties blaring music from a backpack speaker. Dogs are allowed, but you really shouldn't try to take a small or unconditioned dog up there-I saw several.

The Peak trail down was more scenic and far less crowded. At the bottom I saw turkeys and a coyote hunting.

Niles Canyon Railway

Reviewed By Ninaad D - Dublin, California

We purchased the annual membership after seeing how much our toddler enjoyed the ride. We plan to go there on as many Sundays as possible. The ride is peaceful, since kiddo is mesmerized by the movement, whistles, bells and the views. The crew on board is very friendly.
We try to get there early enough so that we can go on more than one round trips. Pack a picnic get off at Fremont to enjoy at the park nearby and then hop on the last ride back...a sunday well spent!

Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area

Reviewed By kaurelio

We love Quarry Lakes for the beautiful walks. Great scenery, and nice trails. We enter at the Niles gate and walk for an hour or so. Last time a fox ran out from the bushes and crossed our path! The birds were wonderful and plenty. Great for picnics and some water sports too.
