Set between the rolling foothills of Danville and Alamo, the 16.3-acre park remains separated from the surrounding residential area by mature oaks, pines and sycamores. And even though it is just minutes from I-680, its beautifully landscaped location gives the impression of being "away from it all" while still being in town.
All three ranch-style buildings can be reserved for various events such as weddings, parties, birthdays and corporate meetings.
Hap Magee Ranch Park 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.
