They had three ponds, two dried up. This is really sickening when you see the sidewalks and streets getting watered elsewhere in San Jose. The one remaining pond has geese, ducks and turtles, all in filthy water. The grounds are huge and were impressive at one time, it is pathetic to me that they are letting the wildlife suffer so much. A groundkeeper told me they are refusing to allow any wildlife rescue societies to come and save the non-migratory birds and the turtles, so they are dying. How very sad! How can they be so cruel to wildlife, yet allow precious water to wastefully run all over concrete - and no one in power cares? Tax dollars wasted, and animals suffering. SHAMEFUL! This is definitely NO wildlife "SANCTUARY"! More of a wildlife deathtrap. :(.
