Alamo Creek Park is a 5.3-acre community park located near Dougherty Road and Willow Creek Drive. Alamo Creek Park has one picnic area available for reservation. There are 48 seats in the picnic area and three BBQs. Reservations can be made by completing a Picnic Area Community application or online. No inflatable jumping houses or other devices are permitted in the park.

 

Besides the other facilities of the park, Alamo Creek Park features a public artwork entitled "Black Lake" by artist Alan Counihan of Dublin , Ireland. The work serves as a visual connection, a bridge of imagination, between the landscape of the park and the soft rolling hills. It was also created to evoke a sense of the ancient landscape of the region, and of the lives that have lived there for thousands of years. The artwork of the park was commissioned by the City of Dublin.

A small park with a playground and a cycle park (which acts as a running or walking trail). Prefer a cycle path for a stroll or a run, as that section is less busy and the bike path along the creek offers a good place for running , cycling and refreshing. Park has a few parking spaces at the entrance to the park.

 

If you park in a small lot, you can take a good four mile walk. Only follow the trail west (left of the lot if you're looking down into the park) up the cliff (you're going through the street at one point and you're going to have to hook right to keep going) before you get to where it ends in a residential area. Then turn around and walk straight back past the park and all the way until you get to the Iron Horse Trail, then come back again. Much of the walk is through houses and apartments, but it's always a fun walk.

 

Alamo Creek Park is wonderful for many reasons-only some of the features of the park include lush green fields, playground, public art, basketball courts, etc. One of the best features of the park is that it is nestled in a peaceful, classic Dublin neighborhood. The Alamo Creek Trail passes through and past the park, providing a scenic and rustic tour along the Alamo Creek bike path.

 

If you feel adventurous, you can take a stroll along the Alamo Creek bike path, cut left at the park and walk up Shady Creek Road to the Dougherty Open Space trail. Along the trail, you'll be able to see California Poppies up close, enjoy a picturesque view of Mt. Diablo, and a bird's eye view of Dublin High School (among all the other features of the Tri-Valley).
