  • This would be a beautiful area near the heart of down town San Jose, however it has a lot of homeless that hang out down there and panhandle and do drugs, very little police patrolling and dark areas ...  more »
  • There are much better parks around the bay area to jog/walk/visit. Dry, dirt roads here. Vegetation is pretty much gone. No water in the river. Quite a bit of homeless people hang out here....however ...  more »
  • It was mostly hot and dry walking the trail. Very little water to see because of the drought. There were a lot of ground squirrels and some homeless people.

  • It's actually a nice-looking and small-child-friendly park, which could be good for neighbors having small children. But compared to other functional parks, I would consider this park a wasted trip and a waste of the city’s money. However, my review is mostly based on a very negative experience with the staff there. In brief, make sure you read ALL their rules online before you plan on going there, because the controlling staff there will confront you and threaten you with citations if they robotically sense you aren’t complying with all their written rules to the letter. For example, I took the light rail some distance and rode a push scooter to meet someone there at the park. The person guarding the gate pointed out that I couldn't take the scooter into the park and pointed to a sign of a person riding a scooter, crossed out. Of course, I took this to mean what it means at every other location I've seen that sign: that I should dismount the scooter and not ride it. I dismounted and folded the scooter and walked in. Several minutes later a sour face showed up to accuse me in front of my friends and family of purposely disregarding the attendant and the sign. She told me to take the scooter back to my car. “I didn’t arrive in a car.” “You can’t have it here…” I asked for an explanation describing the purpose of the rule. “To keep it nice here.” “How does a scooter make it not nice?” “When people ride their scooters and skateboards in here…” “I’m not riding a scooter in here and I’m not going to ride a scooter in here. It’s folded right here and lying under my backpack.” (The logic of this had to be explained a few times.) She also appealed to the programming authority of The Sign. She offered to keep the scooter in their office, which I was considering, but while I was asking and trying to figure out how far away their office was, she threatened to bring rangers there to cite me—or worse. Fortunately, there was no need to escalate to her foolish application of THE LAW, when we realized I could just put the scooter in the car of one of the other people with whom I was meeting. After all, I’m not unreasonable, even when provoked by a complete absence of reason. Naturally, their rule had us all laughing later on as we watched people in the park hazardously pushing baby strollers and walkers through the park. If only Sour-Face had recognized these wheeled horrors! Apparently Sour-Face is in charge of the park; so there is no one with more sense and diplomacy to whom you can appeal. So beware!
  • Nice route and size, unfortunately like any urban park, can have litter, smells, and a place for the less fortunate. Good bike trail though
  • A good place to play Pokemon Go :D Lots of lures especially in the evening :D
  • Nice trails for walking/running/biking. Make sure to wear sunscreen if it's hot, as there isn't much tree cover.
