This is a great park for locals to come and visit. They have great walking/running paths. There is also numbered stops to do certain exercises at each one. Tons of ducks and birds but signs to not feed them :( Overall a good park.

I was here with my wife, son and myself. This place is nice. Not very crowded during the afternoons and a few shaded areas to spend the evening with the family. Just a little concerned with the duck dropping which seem to be all over the place :) It's connected to the Santa Clara Library and is a fun place.

One that totally accommodates the little ones with swings, slides and all and the other area that totally accommodates the older kids. Swings,... More

Tried fireworks here since they were free. Guess you get what you pay for. Place was packed and the display was really lame. Someone thing happened at the end and the finale fizzled out with 10-60 second gaps between various. Traffic was aweful. They should have opened up the high school parking. Had to walk a mile to find parking... More

Great park for a picnic, wine and arts, or large gathering. You can rent out several areas for your private party. It's located behind the Santa Clara Swim Center and is a great place to walk around or just watch the ducks.

too loud and when events take place, the traffic is terrible. Should do a better job monitoring traffic. Often there are homeless people hanging out.
