Much is brewing around downtown San Jose these days, some things have been in the works for decades. Included in those decades-long planning efforts is our Guadalupe Gardens Master Plan. Adopted by the City at the turn of the new millennium, this plan lays the ground work for our future – decades from now. Elements of that plan are being visualized so we can realize them.
Ken Kay Visioning
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.
Visitor and Education Center
Adjacent to the upcoming Rotary Children’s Playgarden, a replacement plan for a stunning new Visitor and Education Center. Replacing our current bunker, and bringing the outside in for our events and education, this vision places yet another jewel in the crown of downtown San Jose.
