Hap Magee Ranch Park (1025 La Gonda Way). Hap Magee has quite a storied past. A barn façade at the park entrance commemorates the park’s former life as a ranch for longhorn steer. Before the cattle called it home, the site was a summer camp for San Francisco orphans, known as Camp Swain. Look for a drinking fountain commemorating Camp Swain with a plaque and a brick rendering of children playing.
Hap Magee’s water feature is a combination of metal tubes that form a tunnel with water spraying inside as kids run through, and water spraying up from the ground. A motion sensor activates the water feature on a random circuit. (Please see water feature FAQs in right hand column for more information.) This 17-acre park also has walking trails, separate play areas for younger and older children, picnic areas, and a dog park.
From April 1st through September 30th, the water play features will be turned on during the hours listed below. Barring any restrictions on water usage or periods of inclement weather, the water features will operate on this schedule until they close for the winter on October 1st. Water Feature Hours of Operations: Weekdays: 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Weekends: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
