Augustin Bernal Community Park is a 237-acre (0.96 km2) park in the hills southwest of Pleasanton, California.[1]

The park was donated to the city in 1971 by Walter S. Johnson,[a] and connects to Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park. The park is named for Spanish settler, Augustin Bernal,to whom the land on which the park sits, was originally granted.[2]

Access to the park's public staging area is through a gated community, Golden Eagle Farms. Pleasanton residents can show proof of residency to get past the community's gate at Golden Eagle Way and Foothill Road; non-residents can obtain a one-week permit at Pleasanton's Department of Parks and Community Services.[1] The Community Services office is at 200 Old Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton.[3]

Notes[edit]
