Hap Magee Ranch Park

1025 La Gonda Way, Danville, CA 94526


Hap Magee Park Ranch (Gonda Way, 1025). Hap Magee's got a story-telling background. A barn front at the entry to the park commemorates the early life of the park as a longhorn steering operation. A 16.3 acre park, collectively run by the City of Danville and Alamo city (Contrar Costa), Hap Magee Ranch Park is a 16.3 acre park. The park is unique in Valle di San Ramón due to its historical buildings, spontaneous leisure activities, location on the main community parks, artistic memorials and the governance of JPOC. Many valley parks are spectacular with mature trees and unique design elements, but none of them match Magee's rural environment.

It was a summer camp for the children in San Francisco, known as the Resort Swain, before the cattle called this home. Search for a potable fountain commemorating Camp Swain with a marker and children's brick replica. The water feature of Hap Magee is a mixture of metal tubes forming a funnel that sprays water to children and sprinkles water from the ground. The water feature on a random circuit is triggered by a motion sensor. This 17-acre property also features walking trails, separate children's play areas and picnic areas and a dog park. 

The site has been slowly revamped and restored in 3 historic houses–an ongoing process. Danville workers once stayed in and renovated the Houses of Swain and Magee, now open to the public for sale. The YMCA has leased the cottage since 1995, having a frequent presence in the area. In the land, next to the historic cottages is an extensive kid's play area with a ranch-theme, with a sand volleyball court, water features, benches and picnic tables. Canine Corral, a 1/2 acre off-leash, is accessible to the north of the huts in a small dog park with grass. Hap Magee Park is a stunning jewel of a park that suits many park visitors. Hap Magee Ranch Park As a family trip to the Indian site (part of the third grade curriculum) establishes a gaming system and dog park, a transition is taking place.

The East Bay Regional Park District constructed a steel bridge over San Ramon Creek, which linked the Las Trampas Regional Trail to Mount Diablo in 1993 (for wanderers, motorcyclists and equestrians). The Council has developed a unique path between Danville Blvd. and the bridge with residents. The Memorial Drinking Fountain of the Orphans and the Indian Commemorative Site were planned by architects, all installed in 1997.
