This is a superb city park. There is the George F. Haines International Swim Center swim center here. The facility has trained Olympic stars, has a very good swim club, Santa Clara aquamaidsd (Synchronized Swimming) and the public for some hours can also swim here. The pool is open to both residents and non-residents. There is a lawn bowling facility;... More

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.

Central Park is a beautiful park and a great place to take the kids or just relax. Lots of open space, several areas to barbeque and picnic, and it has two different play areas for the kids. 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.

I grew up in Sunnyvale / Santa Clara so I know this park well. It is a bit non-descript, better than just a neighborhood park because of the playground, tennis courts, fields...but don't think Central Park New York, because this is the sanitized suburban type of park with a library and pool. The pool is one of the best features.... More
