One of the things that makes Ed Levin County Park special is that it’s located in the foothills above Milpitas. Just a short drive from Interstate 680, you’re given the choice of two park areas – Sandy Wool Lake and Spring Valley Pond.
The Sandy Wool Lake area offers fishing, a popular dog park, and if you time it right, you can watch hang gliders soar over the hills. The Spring Valley Pond area is smaller, but just as inviting. The pond gives you an up-close look at various bird species and turtles that like to sunbathe on half-submerged tree branches. Both park areas have accessible parking, restrooms, and picnic tables. Cell phone service isn’t reliable.
Ed Levin is an ideal place to get away from the city and enjoy having a picnic in a quiet and scenic park setting.
