Lafayette, California Kid-Friendly Park Information

 

Lafayette has always worked hard for its people and tourists to develop parks and leisure facilities, and it has succeeded. Although several proposals are envisaged to build even more park land, the existing reserves are considerably greater than they were just a few decades ago. The town shares several services with other towns and cities like Moraga, where Lafayette has chipped in to help create the Skate Park. If you visit Lafayette, or if you live in Lafayette, you have to look at the parks as a network of park facilities, playgrounds and fields for students, and surrounding Lafayette park property.
