Not familiar with the Guadalupe River Parks?Here is an intro to the treasures these wonderful parks hold….
In the dense urban environment of downtown San Jose, the trails, parks and plazas of the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens not only serve to enjoy and preserve natural ecology, they offer residents and visitors a multitude of ways to recreate, relax, discover and enjoy
Ride, walk, run or skate 2.6 miles of trails, enjoy the public art, attend a festival, watch the birds, or romp in a playground. Stop and smell the roses, there are 3,700 varieties to choose from in the Heritage Rose Garden. See the fruit trees that put this valley on the map in the Historic Orchard.
Explore the latest in drought tolerant landscaping in the Courtyard Garden. Or cultivate your own plot in the Guadalupe Community Garden. Take a rest at one of the seven Sister City seating areas to simply watch the river flow.
