Gordon E. Oliver Eden Shores Park is located in the huge new housing development off of Hesperian/Union City Blvd. It is a nice new neighborhood park.
There are two separate play areas with play structures for both older and younger kids. Both play structures are nice and the older kid's play structure is quite big. There are seven slides total, a zip line, a rolling log, and a climbing net.
The park also features a basketball court, three tennis courts, and a big grassy field. There is a nice, flat path around the park that is great for riding bikes. There are also lots of picnic benches around the play areas, so supervising is easy even though the play areas are not fenced. I felt very safe there letting my son ride out of my sight for a few moments.
A very cool thing about Eden Shores Park is its proximity to an entrance for the San Francisco Bay Trail. The Bay Trail entrance is just down the street north of the park. We walked and road up to the entrance and my son wanted so much to explore the trail further. This particular entrance leads to lots of water ways and gravel paths. Fantastic for bird watching and enjoying peace and quiet!
