History of Ramona Park
Because of the San Francisco earthquake on April 18, the park opening scheduled for April 26, 1906, was moved to July 4 with 25% of the receipts turned over to the earthquake relief committee. On opening day a special train left San Francisco at 8 a.m
The City of San Ramon encourages our residents to enjoy this beautiful park named in celebration of our historic past. By acquiring, protecting and maintaining this valuable parkland, the City of San Ramon is preserving for current and future generations natural places where people and other living things can thrive.
