Orangevale Community Park is a 76 acre community park with three distinct recreation areas: The Shady Oaks Disc Golf Course, the Main Park Entrance (Oak & Filbert), and the Horse Arena.

The most unique aspect of the park is the natural area in the northwest area of the park. This area is crisscrossed by meandering equestrian and pedestrian trails and by two tributaries to Linda Creek. Several habitat types can be identified in this small plot: open grassland, with a scattering of Blue Oaks; oak grassland more heavily wooded, predominantly with Live Oaks; and oak woodland/riparian along the creek. A small number of “heritage” Valley Oaks are found in the area which are 60 inches or greater in circumference. An assortment of native plants also grows here, including perennial bunch grasses and purple milkweed.
This park is very well located; with Casa Roble High School to the northeast, Green Oaks Elementary School to the east, and Louis Pasteur Middle School adjoining the park to the south.
Located at 7301 Filbert Ave.
