Reviews of Softball Fields in Bay Area

Hey, softball fans,

Howz it going?  As travel softball family I am sure you have had your share of visiting various fields in and around the Bay Area.  Sometimes the fields are nice and sometimes they are awful. Over the years I have been taking pics of the parks we play in and their snack shacks. Some of the park reviews are listed below.  I still have many to list here and will keep adding more as soon as I have time. So please continue to check here on a regular basis.  I also have the same listed under the Softball Field Review page so you don’t have to scroll to find the field reviews in the blog section of this site.  I hope this will benefit other parents and help them find out in advance if there is a snack shack or entry fee or if the park is kid friendly or pet-friendly.

Last weekend we had our games at Alden E. Oliver sports complex at Hayward, CA. Click on the picture below to see a larger picture.

This park has 4 softball fields and 2 soccer fields. There are 2 snack shacks.  One inside the softball field that you have to pay to get in and one outside the field that is accessible to soccer players.

Usually any place you pay to get in has better restrooms.  This park is no exception.  It is well taken care of by the custodians.  I would happily pay an entry fee to have decent restrooms.

Parking is a little tricky if you are driving an SUV or Minivan or a big truck, there seems to be more compact parking spots and the spots get filled fast.  But there always seems to be plenty of street parking.

The snack shack inside the field has the usual snack shack foods. Please see the picture below for the menu.

There is also a really nice play area for siblings that get bored after one inning 😉
