One of our Concord Real Estate Agents, Eileen Modawar lives in Concord and recommends Newhall Park, which is located off of Ayers Road and Turtle Creek Road. When asking Eileen for recommendations for great parks in Concord, she said: “Newhall Park has a beautiful dog park, several soccer fields, a running trail, and a great new play structure for the kids!.” I don’t know about you, but coming from a mom with a few little ones, it can be extremely hard to get the children tuckered out, so this park offers a lot of space and activities for them to get their energy out! This park also has a picnic area with an abundance of open green grass to run on, as well as a lake which is popular for geese and ducks to visit.
