Bol Park Path Description

The Bol Park Path is a charmer that threads through a peaceful Palo Alto neighborhood in the hills south of San Francisco. At its heart is Bol Park, a strip of playground and lawn laid alongside Matadero Creek. The area was once home to a donkey pasture, and two donkeys remain to greet visitors from a private corral just off the trail.

The trail is also popular with students who use the path to reach Gunn High School at the trail's southern end on weekdays.

Parking and Trail Access

There is very limited parking along the road at the Hanover Street end point. Parking lots in the area are for private businesses. Consider parking along Laguna Avenue at Bol Park instead.

Bol Park Path Reviews

If only there was a bathroom!

This path is very family/kid friendly (flat, playground...bonus playground a mile out...donkeys you can pet, but there are no public restrooms nearby! Would be a four star rating if there was a bathroom.

Popular trail

Well maintained, good for inline skating with some bridges with a bit rough surface. Relatively crowded with joggers and strollers.
