Multiple sets of stairs lead you to the top of this park, so you best be prepared for that before you come. There is also a really great playground here for kids, so if you were trying to double duty it with walking the dog and taking your kids to the park, Alta Plaza is the park for you.
I like this park because it has a different feel than Lafayette. The people in Lafayette are a little bit more laid back. There isn't as much traffic at Lafayette as there is Alta Plaza. Alta Plaza Park has more things to offer more people, so you tend to get more visitors. Lafayette Park is a dog walkers dream until a sunny day, and then us dog owners get scornful looks from the people who are trying to use the park for something other than entertaining a dog.
I like taking my dog on a loop at Alta Plaza. First going up the stairs on the East side and worming my way up the path. Then we get to meet all the other dogs. We play there for a bit and then decide if we will take a loop near the playground, or the tennis courts, you know, not my choice, but my dogs.
We usually linger for a bit on the South side and take a view of the city facing south. I like looking at the city from different views, and boy does this offer a good one.
So if your looking for a new park, or just want to try a different one out for the day, then Alta Plaza Park might just be for you.
