Once proposed for a housing development, this lovely but little-known 14-acre hilltop park was eventually protected and donated to the Town by C. Fredrick Faudé in 1973.
There are no amenities in this park, but a fire road and numerous trails invite exploring or just admiring the views. This hidden jewel offers some of the best views in San Anselmo.
• South Entrance: From the Hub, proceed west on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Turn right on San Francisco Boulevard, then the first left onto Alderney Avenue. Bear right to the corner of Oakland Avenue and park off the road.
• North Entrance: From the Hub, proceed west on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Turn right on Broadmoor Avenue to its end. Turn right on Indian Rock to its end. Turn right onto Tomahawk and park near where it turns into Elkhorn Way.
• West Entrance: Only locals know about the west entrance to the park. Take Drake to Broadmoor, then turn right onto Brookside Drive. Stone Court is a cul-de-sac on the left. Follow a series of secret and very steep stairways all the way to the top.
