Alma Park provides an escape, peace of mind and a chance to relax with friends and family or by yourself. You can go for a stroll, take a deep breath of clean air, sunbathe, play Wiffle ball, sit on a bench, read for hours, anything that is simple and fulfilling. This park is accessible to poor people and rich people. You shouldn’t have to travel for hours to get to a park. You should just be able to walk 10-30 minutes or take a short train ride to get there. It also has lots of trees and ponds to look at, lots of grass to walk or run on and smell the fresh air in the area. Alma Park is considered a sanctuary, a safe place to stay by women or children. Anyone is able to go there and hang out without being threatened in any way. Park security is present to check the people who visit the place.

This is indeed a beautiful little park located in Walnut Creek. There is no restroom here. People that live nearby find this place a convenient location for them to come to and just have fun. There are some benches and picnic tables available, where you can spend time with friends, family or with your special someone.

Alma Park has a parking lot but it only has 3 spaces, so it fills up easily. Overall very cute small park to enjoy the sun or have your dog play. The people here are all kind and respectful too.
