Lee Gerner Park 939 7th St, Novato, CA94945 Novato Creek runs west-to-east through the downtown area and bisects a narrow park called Lee Gerner Park. It is on the…More north side of the Novato main library and on the south side of the Downtown Novato shopping center. Other than a paved path on either side of the creek and a couple of benches, there isn't much to this park. Kids can wander down to the creek to observe nature, but they'll probably observe a couple of crashed shopping carts and garbage as well. There are some beautiful trees in the area, which makes it a decent place to spend a short time with a book from the library or a treat from the nearby Creekside Bakery.
