Central Park

<p>Fremont's Central Park and Lake Elizabeth may have been made famous by The Kite Runner, but they've been the cornerstone of community in this city since the 1960s. The 83-acre lake is completely man made but its been around for so long that it blends into the park seamlessly. The lake is stocked for fishing, and is a popular spot for boating, walking, and biking. There's also a section that's open to swimmers in the hot summer months. The playgrounds and picnic grounds are also the perfect place to unwind after a stressful week at work or school.</p>

Ardenwood Historic Farm

<p>Though the city of Fremont has only been around for a little over a half century, the land in this part of the Bay Area has been settled for much longer. To get a taste of what life was like in Fremont during the days of the 49ers, head over to Ardenwood Historic Farm. The farm was founded by George Washington Patterson, who came to California during the Gold Rush. Unfortunately, there was never much gold in the ground in Fremont. Fortunately, the area was the perfect place to start a farm. Today, the farm is still going strong, making use of the same agricultural tricks and techniques that Patterson used in the 1800s.</p>


<p>Niles, which is one of Fremont's five districts, is a small town trapped in a big city. This geographically isolated area is home to a quaint turn of the century downtown area and is famed for being home to one of the first motion picture companies on the West Coast, Essanay Studios. In fact, you may have seen Niles on the silver screen, as Charlie Chaplin made many of his films in this corner of Fremont. Today, you can view some of the silent films that made Chaplin famous at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum.</p>
