Video: Go Back In Time. Visit Ardenwood Farm

What a great place to picnic and play close to Fremont, Newark and Union City. See for yourself on this Patch video.


Before they paved paradise and put up a parking lot, much of the East Bay looked like Ardenwood Historic Farm.

The East Bay Regional Park District has preserved a bit of the region's agricultural past in this bucolic oasis close to Fremont, Union City and Newark.

This is a good time of year to see spring lambs strut their stuff, as this Patch video shows.
