Marin County Parks and Open Space Department

Hal Brown Park at Creekside DetailThe heart of this 26-acre community park is the playground. Preschoolers ages two to five can enjoy sand and water play, spinning bowls, swings, tricycle track, and shade structures. Clapper Rail and Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse nests reflect endangered species in neighboring marshland. Ages five to twelve can climb a 17-foot net or 8-foot wall, and turbo slide from a mini-overlook.

Visitors can also take advantage of an expansive turf area for play and relaxation, a health and wellness grove with medicinal plants, benches, picnic tables, a petanque court, amphitheater, and overlook with stunning views of Corte Madera Creek, Creekside Marsh, and Mt. Tamalpais

Picnic tables, benches, playground areas, pathway, restroom, and overlook are accessible. Dogs are allowed on leash and must not enter wetland areas because of sensitive habitat. Named after the Marin County Second District Board of Supervisor Harold C. Brown Jr., this park reopened on February 14, 2011 following extensive renovations.
