Description: This park (not to be confused with Anthony Chabot Regional Park) is a shaded 10-acre park with an 18-hole disc golf course, large grassy areas, picnic tables, barbecue pits, a slide, and volleyball courts. I’ve played disc golf here after hiking Lake Chabot with friends, and we took turns holding my dog’s leash while another person throws. It's a decent sized course and I love the feel of practically playing in the woods and having to maneuver around trees. This place offers table reservations, so it would be a great place to host a BBQ picnic or kid’s birthday, and you can bring your dog. It’s a large park with plenty of activities for the whole family.
Please note that only a few of the holes have signage, and some of the holes use the same baskets, so this may not be the best course if you're a brand new beginner, as it could be confusing (but still fun!).
There are trash cans throughout the park and restrooms a short walk down from the entrance.
This park also has connecting trails to Lake Chabot, which is great, because it's the one of the few parking lots you can park for free. To access these trails, when you drive in over the bridge, head uphill to your left. There are a few parking spots right next to the trailhead, but if it's full you can park in the main area and it's only a short walk up the hill. You'll start on West Shore Trail and can hike on the left side of the lake (Bass Cove Trail). As of July 2023, West Shore Trail is closed at the end of the dam, about 0.6 miles from the parking lot, so you won't be able to hike that direction. I recommend you hike the lake counter-clockwise, by taking Bass Cove Trail.
