Description

Rinconada Park is a showcase park for the city of Palo Alto. First established in 1922, it's the city's second oldest park. At 19 acres it offers many amenities among its beautiful oak and redwood trees. There are two playgrounds, tennis courts, a swim center, a community center, and the wonderful Junior Museum and Zoo.

The big play area is located next to the Junior Museum and Zoo off of Middlefield Rd. It has two play structures with a ship theme for one of them, 6 big kid swings, 5 slides, lots of monkey bars, a sand box, a zip line, and tanbark. Across the big field by the tennis courts is the other play area. This play area is made for younger kids and is completely fenced in. It has 4 slides, 4 tot swings, 2 big kid swings, and sand covering.

Rinconada Park also has 9 tennis courts with 6 of them lighted, a big open field great for Frisbee, a swim center with big regulation sized pool and wonderful clover-shaped children's pool, and a special grove of magnificent redwoods for those seeking peace and quiet.

A big reason to make a special trip to this park is the Junior Museum and Zoo. This is a fabulous place for young kids to experience hands-on science exhibits and to get up close to over 50 species of animals. Admission is free, but a $3 donation per person is suggested. Believe me, $3 is well worth it.
