Centrally located right across the street from the Post Office, this park boasts one of the largest Moreton Bay fig trees in California.  Planted in 1874, this tree is truly huge and actually dwarfs the gazebo on the other side of the park.

This magnificent tree is joined by a children's play area, a gazebo, picnic facilities and restrooms.

Directions: 

Southbound: From the 101 take the Main Street exit.  Turn right at the bottom of the ramp and drive until you reach Ventura Avenue. Turn right and then take the next left onto Santa Clara.  Drive until you reach Chestnut.  You will see the park on your right.  The Post Office is on your left.

Northbound: From the 101 take the California Street exit. Be careful as you reach the top of the ramp, as it empties quite abruptly onto a major, and rather unmarked, intersection.  Turn right onto Santa Clara and drive until you reach Chestnut.  You will see the park on your right.  The Post Office is on your left.
