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!

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
