Things to Do in Vacaville: Lagoon Valley Park – Part 1

It’s not officially Spring just yet, but boy does it feel like it. With weather this perfect, it’s time to find things to do outside again! Vacaville offers a host of outdoor activities for one and all, but Lagoon Valley Park features so many of these options that we decided to focus solely on this location for a few weeks.

Whether you’re into hiking, trail running, mountain biking, horse back riding, disc golf, archery, or just plain sitting and watching the sunset, Lagoon Valley Park is the place for you. We’ll cover all of these in the near future, but this week we’re focused on exploring the natural beauty of the area.

For those who like to stroll and soak up the sun, a walk around the lagoon is in order. There are many winding trails that go up and down the hills of Lagoon Valley, but for those who prefer a more horizontal trek, go for a simple walk around the lagoon.

If a little shade and a few hills don’t bother you, try starting your walk at the Butcher Rd entrance and head to Jack Hume Grove. A walk through the Redwoods & native plants is sure to clear and refresh your mind. The grove was planted back in 1982, and then expanded into a park are after Jack Hume, the grove’s main benefactor and namesake, passed away in 1991.

Of course, you can always just sit by the lagoon and watch the sun rise or set over the Vaca Valley Hills.
