“Lived across the street”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

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.

“Swim at the International Swim Center”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

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. It has a shallow pool, a 50-meter olympic pool that has been used for training by Mark Spitz and others (okay, so maybe it's not the newest), and a diving pool. This is the place to go if you are serious about swimming. The best time is Monday through Friday 12 noon to 1 pm. For a few dollars you can jump in the appropriate lane, from slow to Master's, and get a great workout. Swimmers go during their lunch hour, so you know they don't have too much time to goof off. Still, the same swimmers go year after year, so it's a friendly bunch.
