Serrano Creek Park offers shady, peaceful, paved paths in the middle of a eucalyptus forest. There are several routes you can take. It's delightful to walk among the beautiful trees. You don't see the creek the whole way (only once you get closer to Bake Pkwy), but it is there, making everything green. It can get hot at this walking path in summer because it is tucked down into a recessed area.

At the far east end of the path is a cute, shady playground for small children. It has a party gazebo with three picnic tables, rock-climbing boulders, steeping stones, a steering wheel, an animal tracks plaque, baby swings, swings, and a sad-looking space net. The flooring is spongy rubber and sometimes sand. There is a restroom near the playground.
The walk goes for 1.4km all the way to Bake Parkway (the trail becomes hard-packed dirt as you get closer to Bake Parkway). There is an equestrian center nearby and you sometimes see horses go by on the trail.
After, have a boba tea, coffee, or frozen yogurt with your kids at The Orchard Shopping Center, and check out the two stores kids love: Daiso Japanese Variety Store and Five Below.
