City Parks and Trails

Beyer Playground

The City of Modesto operates and maintains 76 parks featuring: 

  • Over Five Hundred Acres of Turf
  • Seven Splash Grounds
  • One Wading Pool
  • Forty Four Tennis Courts
  • Eight Lighted Ball Fields
  • Eighteen Group Picnic Sites
  • Over Fifteen Miles of Bike Paths

What makes a park a park? Is it just a plot of land with grass, some trees and some play equipment? Or is there more to a park than just those things? A park is no longer a simple space with landscaping; it is now a place where we can go to understand, relate to and experience nature. It is alive with activities like children playing, people walking or jogging, concerts, movie nights, festivals, picnics and family gatherings.
