Recreation

The Central Valley is the perfect location for recreational fun. From hiking, going, swimming, hot air balloon rides, having fun at parks, wine tasting, horseback and bike riding, and driving along the countryside, Patterson is a sleepy little hideaway with so much to offer.

A quick jaunt over the hills or down the freeway and residents are taken to the beauty and splendor of the City by the Bay or Lake Tahoe.
