Central Park is the largest of San Ramon's multi-feature parks, offering 55 acres of recreation that includes a…More skateboard park, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, a lighted basketball court, a new playground and acres of open parkland with trees, picnic benches and fountains.
It also has a new playground adjacent to the Community Center. Kids can slide down the colorful slides, climb on the rock-climbing wall, and dig in the small sand patch for play fossils remains.
The annual San Ramon Art & Wind Festival takes place at the park each Memorial Day weekend, drawing huge crowds to kite-flying demonstrations, live entertainment, kids' activities, and art and craft booths.
In the summer, it hosts a free concert series. Families can bring blankets and picnic dinners and enjoy bands ranging from jazzy blues to music of the '80s.
It is also home to the San Ramon Community Center, which hosts conferences, classes and the Lindsay Dirkx Brown Gallery.
