Sunnyvale Parks and Open Space

The Neighborhood Parks and Open Space Management Program maintains over 476 acres of Parks, open space systems and boulevard landscaping to keep them hazard-free, usable and attractive for residents and the business community. The Sunnyvale Park system was designed with the goal that every neighborhood would be within walking distance of a park. Many of Sunnyvale's Neighborhood Parks have a theme which makes each Park unique. Sunnyvale's Parks range from small "mini or pocket" Parks to Baylands Park which is 177 acres. We hope that you visit and enjoy all of Sunnyvale's Parks!

Seven Seas Park Is Now Open!


Sunnyvale's newest park, Seven Seas Park is now open. The park is located at 1010 Morse Ave. Park features include a fenced dog park, two playgrounds, 1/2 basketball court, tennis court, spray pool, a multi-use field, picnic tables. two barbecues and restrooms. The picnic sites are all non-reservable and available on a first come, first serve basis. The park was designed as a neighborhood park according to council approved design guidelines and is intended to primarily serve the local community that is within walking or bicycle distance of the park. Parking is very limited, please do not park anywhere illegally including on Morse Avenue in front of the park or in nearby private property parking lots. The City is aware of the situation and is pursuing several alternatives to provide additional public parking as soon as possible. Meanwhile, visitors can park on Borregas Avenue located to the west of the park off Weddell Drive and then walk along the John Christian Greenbelt Pathway back to Morse Avenue.

San Francisco Bay Trail

The San Francisco Bay Trail has been connected throughout the South Bay! Thanks to the efforts of many agencies and individuals the "Moffett Connector" was opened in September 2010. The best access to the Bay Trail in Sunnyvale is the trail head located near the Water Pollution Control Plant off Borregas Avenue and Caribbean Drive.  This trail head has portable restrooms, a water fountain, and plenty of free parking. You can take the Bay Trail to the North and see unparalleled vistas of the Dumbarton and San Mateo Bridges or to the south and the historic Alviso Marina. Here is a map of the Bay Trail with the Moffett Connector -- New Bay Trail Map.
