Hal Brown Park at Creekside
Bon Air Rd.
Larkspur, CA 94904
Park: Climbing, Playground, Walk
Visitors will find a large, expansive turf area for informal play and relaxation, a remodeled bathroom, several new benches and picnic tables scattered throughout, an area for petanque, a health and wellness grove landscaped with plants that have healing and medicinal attributes, a redesigned amphitheater that provides the ideal location for children’s outdoor educational classes and community theatrical presentations, a new overlook that offers stunning views of Corte Madera Creek and Creekside Marsh as well as arguably the most outstanding view of Mt. Tamalpais in the entire county. The heart of the park is the playground. The preschool area (for ages two through five) includes a sand and water play feature, spinning bowls, kid-sized sitting ducks as well as Clapper Rail and Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse nests that echo the importance of the neighboring marshland and its wild residents, swings, a tricycle track, and shade structures. The elementary area (for ages five through twelve) includes a sand and water play feature that’s representative of a creek, a 17-foot climbing net, an 8-foot climbing wall, and a turbo slide with a mini-overlook. The picnic tables, benches, playground areas, pathway, restroom, and overlook are accessible. Dogs are allowed on leash and must not enter wetland areas because of sensitive habitat and wildlife species.
Directions: From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take exit 450B for Sir Francis Drake Blvd west 1.2 miles. Turn left onto Bon Air Rd and follow 0.3 mile. The park is on the right.
