Walden Park is a 4.5 acre park where a lot of local Walnut Creek residents go to flock and have their kids play.
- Jungle gym and swing set, with wood chips.
- One full court basketball court.
- One restroom location.
- Lots of grass and trees for shade.
- A few picnic tables.
- One walkway all the way around, and connecting to Iron Horse Trail.
- Two doggie bag stations.
- Frisbee golf in the back area.
- Parking lot for only about 18 cars.
It’s round, it’s traveling a fair distance and the goal is to get it in the hole. But this is not a ball of golf. It’s a golf ball, a round plastic saucer (think Frisbee), and it looks as if a disc golf course will be coming to Walden Park soon.
According to the Contra Costa Times, the Park, Leisure and Open Space Commission voted last week to propose to the City Council that Walden Park be the location of the course. Installation will cost around $5,500, and the labor has been donated by a Disc Golf company.
Some residents aren’t too pleased with the project, worried that the course would add more traffic, parking problems and crowds of people to what is now a very bucolic environment.
But proponents agree that although the game is rising in popularity, it probably won’t draw too many people.
There are also courses in Moraga, Berkeley, and San Ramon.
All in all, this is an amazing park, a great place to go to with people of many different ages and interests, there is a disk golf course, a basketball court and playground and lots of open grass good for playing many different games with family and friends!
The Disk Golf court is a brand new addition to the park that many people enjoy and the course itself is in great condition and is very spacious.
The basketball court is fun, but a lot of the time on weekends it is occupied. The court is the official size, in our opinion.
Right now part of the playground (the toddlers area) is being remodeled but the swings and the other part is open for play.
