Hap Magee Ranch Park (1025 La Gonda Way). Hap Magee has a storied past. A barn façade at the park entrance commemorates the park’s former life as a ranch for longhorn steer. Before the cattle called it home, the site was a summer camp for San Francisco orphans, known as Camp Swain. Look for a drinking fountain commemorating Camp Swain with a plaque and a brick rendering of children playing.
Hap Magee’s water feature is a combination of metal tubes that form a tunnel with water spraying inside as kids run through, and water spraying up from the ground. A motion sensor activates the feature on a random circuit. This 17-acre park also has walking trails, separate play areas for younger and older children, picnic areas, and a dog park.
The 1.5 acre Canine Corral provides hours of leash free fun for Danville dogs. The Corral is non-monitored, and relies on its users to maintain reasonable conditions and sanitation—in other words, everybody picks-up after their dogs!
The dog park has separate play areas for large and small dogs. The play surface is grass and includes benches, water feature and minimal shade.Before embarking on a trip to the Canine Corral it is important that users understand the rules and regulations to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.
