Van Maren Park!

Citrus Heights, CA
Take the Greenback Exit in Citrus Heights off the I-80. Go a few miles and turn left at Fountain Square Dr. Go past city hall and the post office. At the round-a-bout turn right at Woodside Drive. Then a left on Thalia Way. The park is on your left. You can park anywhere along the street.

This is one of the newer parks in Citrus Heights within the last year. It is a great quiet neighborhood park for all ages. There are two playgrounds, one for older kids, and one for younger ones. Unfortunately there are no swings. There is a great covered BBQ area and many tables covered by a metal canopy. A drinking fountain and a basketball court are next to the playground. There are no bathroom facilities. There is a lot of open space and wonderful paved trails that go alongside the Arcade Creek. You can even take a sturdy bridge across the river that leads to Costco and Wal-Mart, which are located on Auburn Blvd. Bring your scooters and bikes to ride around this park, along with soccer balls to play on the big grassy fields.
