Water Play Area
The water play area usually operates on the weekend of Memorial Day through the weekend of Labor Day, daily from 11 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. A recirculating water system that filters and manages the water for reuse is the new splash pad.
Public art commissioned by the City of Dublin is also featured in the park. 'Sirius' was completed in 1990 by the artist Peter Voulkas, and is Voulkos's largest and most ambitious bronze work in his long and illustrious career.
Voulkos is known best for his ground-breaking ceramics work. He was one of the first artists to make large-scale sculptures out of clay in the late 1950s. He started to work with bronze in the late '60s and has continued to produce large-scale bronze works for major museums and public commissions throughout the United States over the years.
In the Bay Area, his bronzes can be seen at the Oakland Museum, San Francisco Hall of Justice, and the University Art Museum in Berkeley.
Shannon Park has a wonderful local facility for large events. You and your family can hold an annual dinner or family gathering here, and the staff will be very willing to assist their guests.
The location is easy to access from both I580/I680 with plenty of parking. It's a bit of a walk for the disabled, but it is complete ADA access. Check with staff ahead of time if you're going to be using the audio system, it can be tricky and difficult to hear at times if it's not set up correctly. Keep this in mind if you're going to be using the system.
