Fire Truck Park is a great local destination for families with young children. In addition to a large San Ramon Valley logo'd fire truck play structure with slides and poles, the park includes a large grass area, swings, tables with a BBQ area and a sand area. There are also game tables and a tricycle circle. Fire Truck Park is located at Arlington Way and Halifax Way in the Windemere community of San Ramon.
A fire safety theme has been incorporated into many design elements of the park including the playground equipment, artwork, and landscaping. Fire Truck Park has several interesting art features and public art pieces. Most notable is the seat wall that separates the sand from the play structures. The side of the wall that faces the sandbox contains sixty unique tiles that were created by the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District firefighters, staff and their families. Other art pieces in the park include a bronze fireman statue and a fire hose sculpture.
Fire Truck Park opened on August 18, 2007 with beautiful weather and a large, enthusiastic crowd. Over 1,000 residents attended the opening ceremonies at which Fire District Board President Ken Sandy and San Ramon Mayor H. Abram Wilson released a ceremonial red ribbon from atop two outstretched aerial ladders marking the official park opening. Children swarmed the play structures, participated in hula-hoop contests, had their faces painted, laughed with Scooter the Clown and played parachute games on the large lawn. The smiling crowd also enjoyed fresh-popped Kettle Corn and frozen Jamba Juice smoothies while collecting opening day souvenirs.
