Nestled in suburban Browns Valley is one of Vacaville’s hidden gems. Ridgeview Park’s sprawling field of green and bbq area make it a great place for large gatherings and sporting events for the entire family.
Ridgeview Park Amenities
One of Vacaville’s many public parks, Ridgeview has a combination of amenities that make it a great outing location for large gatherings. It has several outdoor bar-b-que pits and a covered area to gather near the jungle gym.
Speaking of the jungle gym, there are actually separate play areas for bigger kids and toddlers.
Treat family or friends to an outdoor bbq in the park. There are several charcoal grilling stations available to use.
Ridgeview Park has a good mix of athletic facilities. There’s a basketball court, soccer field and a backstop for playing baseball. The large open grass area is suitable for a wide range of sports.
Along the walking path that encircles the park are three exercise station and instructions for a circuit workout.
Start near the drinking fountain and make your way around the park. The stations include monkey bars, parallel bars and a sit-up bench.
For a facility with so much to offer for large gatherings, we were surprised to find no restrooms in the park. I suppose that’s something to keep in mind. Being surrounded by a residential area, there aren’t any easy alternatives nearby.
Plenty of Parking
In addition to street parking, there’s a dedicated parking lot with 24 spaces including disabled parking spaces. That’s a lot of parking for a park this size. The only time we imagine parking would ever be an issue is when there’s a sporting event taking place. The local sports league use the park for soccer and baseball games.
Overall Ridgeview Park is a clean and open facility with lots of amenities. Great for dogs and sporting activities, it’s one of Vacaville’s few parks with outdoor covered eating areas and grilling stations. There are play areas for both older kids and toddlers. It’s a great park for all ages.
