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!

Athletic Field Status

Starting March 1, athletic fields will be open for use, weather permitting. For daily updates, please call the turf hotline at (408) 730-7585. See Hot Topic Section for more information on the need for field closures.

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.

Hot Topics

Community Meetings to Discuss Solar Projects at Ortega and Baylands Parks
The City of Sunnyvale is evaluating the potential for deploying solar photovoltaics at City utility sites to reduce the City’s energy costs. Both Ortega Park and Baylands Park were identified as potential locations suitable for this type of project due to the proximity to the Ortega well and the Baylands stormwater pump station. Both community meetings have been held. For more information or to give feedback, call Sunnyvale Environmental Services Department at (408) 730-7260, TDD (408) 730-7501, or email green@sunnyvale.ca.gov.
