Hidden Crest Park
Tucked back in amongst the homes within the Monarch Community, Hidden Crest Park lives up to its name. If you are looking for a quiet location to have a family picnic, this is the spot for you! With five picnic areas spread around a large grass field and a play area, there is sure to be a picnic table ready for you.
The largest of the parks within the Communities of Gale Ranch, Monarch Park has a cricket pitch, large children's play area, and three separate picnic areas, including one beneath a large shade structure. Come by on Saturday mornings to join in or watch one of the pickup cricket games.
Valley View Park
A large park with a softball field, grass field, children's play area with slides and swings, a public tennis court, picnic area, and bathrooms! This is a great location to host a birthday party or just come play on a Saturday morning!
Monarch Park and Valley View Park are also the terminal points for the Monarch Trail, a paved pathway which meanders through the hillsides behind the homes. Just before reaching Valley View Park, a portion of the trail splits off and becomes an unpaved trail providing access to North Monarch Road and as the unpaved path continues.
