“Central Park”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

A place to see the real people of San Jose gathering. If you enjoy people watching you will enjoy this spot.

“Busy city centre area squawking with the cries of budgerigars!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is a good place to people watch and I found the numbers of birds and the noise they make crazy! It is interesting to walk through and experience and maybe enjoy an ice cream, but it feels busy and loud too so you won't want to stay too long!

“Typical city center park”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This park as gotten a face lift several times since we have lived her and it is due again. There is only so much that you can do to a block square park to make it interesting. It is not worth a special trip to see it.

“Nice”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We strolled through this park after visiting the cathedral. It wasn't anything special but was certainly a great place for family and friends to meet and enjoy each other. Very quiet.
