Ken Kay Visioning

KenKayVisioningImageWe have an extraordinary opportunity to create an iconic park in downtown San Jose – and we have the need. By the year 2035, San Jose is projected to have an additional 400,000 residents as well as BART and high-speed rail at Diridon Station, with a ballpark or major corporate campus nearby, and additional high-rise residential housing. Downtown is shifting to the west and the Guadalupe River Park is the nexus between our current downtown and that future expansion.

 

With the support of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and in partnership with 1stACT, we engaged Ken Kay Associates for a visioning exercise for Guadalupe River Park & Gardens. The resulting vision concentrates on three areas of the park: signature art installations and performance space in Discovery Meadow, family-friendly trails, and spectacular improvements to Guadalupe Gardens that maximize and unify the entire 120 acres.
