The park is on N. University Street on the left hand side if your travelling North on Univeristy, It's close to I-10.
This is one of my present favorite street walks in Redlands. Sylvan is a good city park, and University of Redlands is a medium attractive private college. Both are worth the walk. I suggest keeping your dog on a leash (bring doggies litter bags). Parking is anywhere around the perimeter of the college (not so much on the North side of Campus though - the sports complexes are hard to navigate), or around Sylvan Park. Right on Univerity Street along side Sylvan Park is a good spot also. Be careful crossing University Street in the middle of the block, there can be a lot of traffic. Don't miss the entrance to the Math Building (Appleton Hall) on the North East side of the Campus. In the vestibule, make some noise - it's an acoustic marvel, and fun.
This is another nice park, where there's a dry creek that's 90% shaded by a row of giant trees on both sides. It's one of the best parks in Redlands. What's really interesting if anybody has ever considered doing this on one week-end, when you have nothing better to do, is to take a leisure car cruise and visit all the parks in your City. By doing that you'll discover where the best parks are. It's astonishing when you actually stop in an ugly park and ask those people how long they've been going there and some will say since they were kids. What really floors your mind just 3 to 5 miles away, might be the most beautiful park in that city that they have failed to discover. You truly owe it to yourself to do this one week-end, it's a total adventure, you'll be completely surprised to the idea. It's actually exciting to discover what the next park will look like and the end of the day, you'll be so glad you did this. You'll never return to your usual park after doing this.
