Parks in San Rafael, California

The city of San Rafael's parks are one of our city’s best assets. Open spaces for the children to play, safe activities and well-maintained areas are a just a few of the benefits the city provides for its residents and visitors. There are 12 parks, one of which (Freitas Park) is being remodeled into an updated public space.

San Rafael Parks and Open Spaces

San Rafael has several parks and groomed open spaces that can be reserved or are available on a first-come, first-served basis for picnics, barbeques, family events, and parties. Some of the parks are considered community parks: Albert Park, Boyd Park, Pickleweed Park and the Terra Linda Recreational Center.

There are several neighborhood parks and mini-parks such as Bret Harte Park, Boyd Park, Sun Valley Park, Oleander Park, Victor Jones Park, Peacock Gap Park and Gerstle Park. Gerstle Park is also a historic and walkable neighborhood south of First Street close to central Downtown.

Civic Center Lagoon Park has a vast open space by the water and is across from the Marin Civic Center. It’s a nice gentle walk around the lagoon with shady or open spaces to rest in. You get a nice view of the Civic Center.
