San Ramon Parks and Recreation Posts Winter Events

by Jason Kerner, Realtor Broker/Owner


San Ramon Parks and Recreation has just posted it’s updated winter schedule.

One of the best parts of San Ramon, in addition to it’s award winning schools and safe city recognition, is the abundance of access to activities for people of all ages.  The activities range from non-competitive sports to fine arts and academic programs.  In addition, the City of San Ramon hosts incredible holiday activities and events for the entire community.

With well maintained and staffed pools in all parts of San Ramon, it is no wonder the San Ramon Olympic pool and Dougherty Valley Aquatic Center run swim programs throughout the winter months.  The San Ramon Parks and Recreation Winter Guide lists lifeguard instructor courses, water safety instruction and fitness programs.

The San Ramon performing arts center offers drama, Bollywood, Polynesian dance, piano, and ballet classes. After school enrichment programs help students excel or improve in math, Mindcraft, robotics, STEM, speech writing, chess, Chinese language, and more.  The San Ramon Parks and Recreation Winter Guide is a diverse and creative collection of programs for children of all ages.  They even have computer and business courses for older audiences.  For performing arts schedule, go to: SR Winter Guide

Fitness programs are always available for youth, teens and seniors.  Strength and toning, line dancing, karaoke, tai chi kuen and aerobics are just a few of the programs available to our seniors.  For the younger members of our community, tennis, basketball, gymnastics, volleyball and soccer are some of the more popular classes.  Fencing and therapeutic recreation classes has started drawing great attendance.


Holiday celebrations are another way the San Ramon Community comes together.  The Annual Bishop Ranch Tree Lighting Celebration is scheduled for 12/1.  Handel’s The Messiah will be presented at the San Ramon Community Center at Central Park on 12/17.  Forest Hill Farms has holiday wreath making on 12/2 and embroidery on 1/20.  The San Ramon 150 program is promoting a free lecture series.  The Bah Humbug! 5k run is 12/2.  See the San Ramon Parks and Recreation Winter Guide for details and location.

Best San Ramon City Parks

Top 5 San Ramon City Parks

Athens downI believe that San Ramon is home to the best parks in California.  As a resident, father and San Ramon Realtor, I have enjoyed my share of parks over the last 13 years.  Here are my families top 5 favorite San Ramon Parks:  

    1. Athens Down.  Can you say”jungle gym” and “monkey bars”?  If so, this is the park for your family.  Recently renovated, Athens Down Park has an elaborate set up of things to climb and swing.  Typically full of baseball and soccer teams on the grassy fields, this playground is great fun for kids of all ages.   San Ramon Central Park
  1. Central park is our most prestigious park with over 42 acres of play area.  Water features, softball fields, bike paths and open playground with swings is a blast for young kids.  I would have to say that Central Park is our most elaborate playground in the City.  
  2. Memorial Park off Bollinger Canyon Road.  Let your kids get lost in the maze of playground equipment and swings.  The park also includes an adjoining dog park for all our furry friends.  Your family will spend hours enjoying the enormous play structures and open space.Memorial Park    
  3. Valley View Park located at Monarch Rd off Star Jasmine Dr includes 10.25 acres of grassy goodness.  Play ball, run the fields with your dog, or enjoy the slides at this manicured park.  Complete with restroom and shaded picnic tables, Valley View Park in San Ramon is a great outdoor experience. valley view park
  4. Old Ranch Park, 1000 Vista Monte Dr.  This park is ideal for kite flying, soccer, and children who love slides.  The park is also perfect for toddlers learning to ride bikes.  The short bike path circles the grassy field and is easily visible to parents keeping an eye on new riders.  This park also has comfortable bench seating for lunch time or reading. Old Ranch Park also draws a crowd during meteor showers because of it’s location overlooking the Tri-Valley.
