Sunnyvale - Baylands Park

999 East Caribbean Drive

Located on the beautiful San Francisco Bay, Baylands Park provides over seventy acres of developed parkland offering active recreation, pathways and picnic areas for families and large groups. Baylands Park has a Naturalist theme which is enhanced by the many acres of native grasses, open meadows and wonderful vistas. An additional 105 acres of seasonal wetlands is protected as a Wetlands Preserve providing habitat for plants and wildlife. Baylands Park is a successful joint venture between Santa Clara County which owns the property and the City of Sunnyvale which manages and maintains the Park.

Baylands Park offers a variety of playgrounds and play structures for toddlers and small children. In addition, there are many acres of open grassy meadows for enjoyment or miles of trails for recreational activities.

Great park for a short solo walk or a full day family picnic. They charge entry fee ranging from 6$ per car to 25$ for a bus. Great views of the mountains, wetlands and the freeway in different directions. There are a lot of people flying drones with whole areas cordoned off for the same so be a little watchful. Lots of benches strewn throughout the park along with barbecue areas and grills. We went on a Sunday afternoon so parking was easy to find. They have 3 parking lots with ample parking inside the park. All in all a very nice park!

Beautiful park in Sunnyvale with access to the Bay Trail. It's got plenty of walking paths and access to regional bike paths. The park is well maintained and seems very popular during good weather for BBQ's and picnics. It's neat watching the experienced drone racers and drone operators flying their aircraft here since it seems to be one of the few allowed spots. The biggest downside is it is adjacent to 237, so you get a lot of road noise during peak commuting hours.

A very awesome place to hike around. The Bay trail inside is barely used and good opportunity to spot some bird wildlife. It takes about 2 hours to finish the bay trail. This place is frequented by runners, hikers and outdoor lovers alike.

Nice place to walk around. Very breezy so it was perfect for a hot day. Parking was $6

Very beautiful to observe the scenery. Sit facing towards the mountains, and you'll be good. Don't disturb the birds: just sit nearby and relax. They'll let you be if you let them be.
