Contra Loma park is perfect for hiking. You can have an easy 2.7 mile hike around the reservoir or you can hike up into the hills to boost the cardio more »
Nice, clean park to enjoy with the family. Softball, soccer, a fun playground for the kiddos & a really nice reservoir to hike around or enjoy catching some fish... also, did see some people with their own paddle boat, so add your own non-powered boat to your fun filled day at the park.
Last of the large open spaces in Antioch There are some caves and ponds. Some steep trails will build your cardio. Sometimes the cows will stay in their spot and you can walk by them closely. In the winter and spring the hills are an emerald green. I saw many hawks hovering against the wind currents. Sometimes you can spot a coyote or bobcat.
