El Divisadero Park

El Divisadero Dr east of San Carlos Dr Walnut Creek, CA 94596

Building a healthy network of parks in our city is one major way we can protect our animal friends and preserve trees. This also makes the park a great place to teach children about the environment and the importance of preserving natural ecosystems. Parks benefit everyone in the community and at the same time, it helps in the city’s economy. They provide important habitats for many animals. And those are just a handful of reasons why we need to be grateful that we have El Divisadero Park in Walnut Creek. 

Three-acre park located in residential area behind John Muir Medical Center. Park built-in 1985 features a Jr. Soccer field-sized turf area. El Divisadero Park is a small-sized park, primarily used for soccer. Dogs are allowed on a leash and there is plenty of parking lots. It is also a nice place for jogging, brisk walking or playing catch with your dogs. 

El Divisadero Park makes a neighborhood more enjoyable to walk through and provide space for popular sports, encouraging people to exercise and be healthy. They provide hiking trails for walking/ running and other amenities designed to get people active. Considering how few Americans get enough exercise because of their busy schedules. Having a physical activity once in a while is incredibly important, especially for low-income families and others who can’t afford a gym membership or classes.

This park also provides great opportunities for parents to bond with children, and for children to make new friends in the neighborhood. This may be a small park but still a great place for a child’s birthday, giving them the opportunity to run around safely and learn to appreciate nature.
