No Restrooms

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.
