On the grounds of the San Rafael Historical Museum is a large partially fenced in area with manicured lawn, picnic tables, and a hiking trail along the stream. The playground has a wood and plastic play castle with Taj Mahal ice cream style tower. A coil spring rocker dragon and an alligator over wood chips completes the theme. The museum is a restored Victorian that will someday be open to the public. Lots of shady trees such as loquat, maple, cedar, and redwoods. A single tennis court for locals sits by the road.
The real bathrooms are closed and replaced with a portable toilet.
Tricky street parking or a meter lot on Fifth street.
Directly behind the playground is a fire road for maintenance trucks. Watch kids closely since there is no fencing here. Also note that sometimes locals hang out in the secluded areas with radios, drinking and dogs.
