Hidden Lakes Park

Morello Ave & Chilpancingo Pkwy, Martinez, CA 94553, United States


Hidden Lakes Park is a twenty-six-hectare park situated on Morello Avenue and Chilpancingo Parkway in Martinez, California, with a 2.9-kilometer moderately-traveled loop trail located near Martinez, California. The trail is suitable for all ability levels and is mostly used for hiking, walking and running. The hidden lakes park has a sand volleyball court, a multi-purpose area, a jogging track, a concession building, and a toilet. There are picnic areas in this wonderful park that come first to serve the foundation.

Basically, Hidden Lakes Park is three in one park, according to park-goers. The park has two sides, the side of Morello Avenue and the side of Center Avenue.


The Morello side has a track and field, a basketball court, a baseball field, a volleyball court, a picnic table, a restroom and two separate play areas. The Morello side of the park can be reached by hiking trails or by driving and parking in its large parking lot.


The middle Avenue side has a large play structure and a large open grass area that is perfect for young people and young people at heart. The best place for children and young children is the entrance to Center Avenue. There are also a lot of kids to play with for those parents who have a single child. Hidden Lakes Park is well-maintained. There are nice hiking trails for children and adults.


To get to the lake: take the trail to the soccer field. There are several roads, but after about ten minutes, the lake will be on your left. Lots of green algae, but it's getting nicer as you go along. When you see the fountain on the other hand, you will find that more flatlands / benches / people are possible to fish. This is a lovely spot as a park, hike, and peaceful place.


This is the ideal place to host your kid's birthday party, or to carry your family to a picnic, to take a dog for a stroll, or to do some exercise every day. There are still families and dog owners out and around Secret Valley / Lakes, so it still feels really secure.


The little kids are playing the structure of this park so much fun. It's too little for the little ones. If a lot of kids decide to come and play, they get a little crowded. The larger children's area is on the other side of the parking lot. It's also farthest from the toilet, which isn't nice when your newly trained kid needs to go.


Volleyball and soccer field in front of one of the several trails up the hill. Baseball fields are very well groomed. Basketball courts are normally packed with people shooting hoops. There's a sandy area where you can hang a volleyball net for a family picnic. Small BBQs and picnic tables are throughout. If you walk back past the soccer fields, you'll come across one of the many secret lakes. There's a big fountain in one, and they're stocking it with fish! This is where my son fishes. FYI is a poison oak, too. Rolling the trails up the hills gives you a wonderful view.
