The Parks Forward Commission has collaborated with others to create a new app, caliparks.org, that allows you to find parks, trails and other recreation opportunities near you within California.

When I clicked through to State Parks and typed Walnut Grove, CA into the search bar, 4 nearby parks came up:
- Stone Lakes
- Stone Lakes Wildlife Refuge
- Franks Tract State Recreation Area
- Brannan Island State Recreation Area.
In addition the application allows you to locate camping sites, mountain bike trails, dog walking opportunities, and beaches.
The annual San Joaquin Asparagus Festival will be held in Stockton April 17, 18 & 19, 2015. There is a full line-up of entertainment with a hypnotist on Sunday, Country music on Saturday headlined by John Michael Montgomery and Classic Rock on Sunday with Led Zeppelin 2.
Every imaginable kind of asparagus dish will be on offer. All to celebrate the classic Delta crop grown on Victoria Island and elsewhere in California. There is something for almost everyone from a car show to a health and wellness fair along with other entertainment.
It is affordable family entertainment: $10 per adult; $5 for children; and $7 per senior or teen. Parking is just $5 per carload.
