Danville: Sports & Recreation

If you love the outdoors and have a passion for sports and recreation, Danville, California and the region around this scenic town is the place for you.

With its parks and natural spaces, this area of northern California is a great destination for those who love the outdoors. Just within the area around Danville there are 15 East Bay Regional Parks plus a California state park and a national park. The rolling hills and temperate weather year round makes it a perfect setting for enjoying sports and recreational activities.

One wonderful program the East Bay Regional Park District offers each year is the award-winning Trails Challenge Program which is a self-guided hiking, biking, and walking program that attracts thousands of participants. There are 1,200 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and exploration of nature making the East Bay Regional Park District an ideal area for outdoor activities.

The East Bay Regional Park District lies to the east of San Francisco and covers 112,000+ acres of natural lands in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The Park District encompasses natural areas such as lakes, shorelines, and open lands. For recreational purposes there are campgrounds, picnic areas, indoor/outdoor areas that can be rented, golf courses, and other facilities. Visitors can get information from visitor centers, and participate in interpretive and recreation programs.

One of the most popular outdoor recreation areas near Danville is Mount Diablo State Park. The main attraction here is Mount Diablo itself which rises 3,849 feet in the sky making it the highest landmark in the area. This lovely state park has numerous trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. It's a popular camping area, too. Spring is a particularly picturesque time. This is when the wildflowers are in full bloom in a profusion of colors, but if you are here in the winter you are treated to a view of the snow atop the park’s namesake peak.

Less than an hour’s drive from Danville is Lake Del Valle, a beautiful lakeside resort which lies in a valley covered with oak trees. Lake Del Valle is a great spot for swimming, boating, and sailing. There are lifeguards at the swim areas when they are open in the summer. Hikers will enjoy the many great trails by the lakeside. The lake has abundant fish stock and is a favorite of local anglers.

A less strenuous outing in Danville is a visit to Tao House National Park. Tao House used to be the home of Eugene O’Neill, who is the only Nobel Prize–winning playwright from the United States. The park is located in Danville and preserves the home and grounds. The ranch offers amazing views and insight on the area’s history.

You also can find many good parks in the town of Danville with playgrounds for children. Parks here range from small urban spaces to large open tracts with sports fields and trails.

Danville also has a variety of stunningly beautiful golf courses with scenic backdrops and great features to play. If you are in Danville and an avid golfer, you’ll have a great opportunity to golf in the shadow of imposing Mount Diablo.
