RE: Oakland parks that have a lot of kids

A little out of your area but Alameda has some wonderful parks, particularly Franklin Park one block off Encinal and Grand. Packed with children of all ages all weekend long, (light) rain or shine. Many families come to play for the day from off the island. 2 play structures, grassy area for picnics, picnic tables (some can be reserved, others are first-come-first-served but arrive early in good weather) a big tree to climb, baseball diamond, basketball courts, and tennis courts. If you get bored, it is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach! Alameda Mom

RE: Parks without sand

Lincoln Park in Alameda has a splendid playground located among an abundant group of large oak trees. The main playground is bathed in shade all day long. The adjacent tot playground is a little less shady, but I found the main play structures are actually somewhat better for toddlers. The tot structure involves a hard-to-follow-the-baby-through tunnel which opens to a slide and a drop. Stick to the main playground and I assure you will experience a sun-free day in the park. There are also shaded grassy areas. MEG
