The PWDCNC is sponsoring a family fun event in Ed Levin Park


The Club will host a complimentary luncheon prepared by a classically trained chef. He will prepare gourmet toppings and trappings for the sausages of your dreams.

There will be games, toys for the dogs, even costume contests (it will be nearly Halloween also).

Plan to come and meet other members and their PWDs, plan to dine at a chef prepared picnic, get ready to laugh and enjoy.

BUT you need to tell us how many are coming so Chef Marco can prepare accordingly!

This just in – Tonya Perme, professional Bay Area photographer is back by popular demand!

Tonya will be on site to take photos of your PWD/family in the beautiful park setting.

She is offering PWDCNC members a special discount for 15 minute sittings as follow:
* $100 – 3 high resolution digital files
* $150 – 5 high resolution digital files
Please email [email protected] to sign up in advance and let Tonya know how many to expect! For those who sign up – we may send a schedule in advance.

The address the Santa Clara County Parks gives is misleading.

Here is the link to the map of the park where our site is located;


You can also google City of Milpitas Dog Park at Ed Levin and get the correct directions to our picnic site.

Pay the $6.00 Entrance Fee at the ranger station on Downing Road.

There is no cell phone service there so you won’t be able to reach me.

How to Get There

Traveling on either Interstate 680 or 880, take the Calaveras Road exit in Milpitas. Drive east towards the foothills along Calaveras Road. Calaveras Road passes through the southern portion of Ed Levin Park.

There are two main use areas in the park. The Sandy Wool Lake area is located north of Calaveras Road and the Spring Valley Pond area is located south of Calaveras Road.

To reach the Sandy Wool Lake area, take a left turn off Calaveras Road onto Downing Road. Travel north along Downing Road to reach Sandy Wool Lake, the hang gliding area and the main trail use areas.

To reach the Spring Valley Pond area, continue along Calaveras Road, past Downing Road and turn right into the park area to reach the Ranger station, Visitor Center and Spring Valley Pond. Spring Valley Golf Course parking and Club House is located across Calaveras Road from the Visitor Center.

We are under the covered pavilion at the Sandy Wool Site picnic site, next to Sandy Wool Lake.
