“Nature moments away from city”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Just returned from pitching in at a family emergency in San Jose, CA. Needed some moments of nature and went to the wonderful Alum Rock Park. The park is in the foothills of the city and is so dramatic,...one second you are leaving stop lights and concrete & the next you are walking amongst rustling leaves, the edge of a babbling brook and spotting deer.
Better than a day at the spa...an easy stroll with nature.

“is an amazing park”
Reviewed July 19, 2008

Alum Rock Park is an amazing park for both the history of the park and its natural non park like essence.The park was a great health spa in the 20's, but has been retaken by nature, so It is a great place to hike.
