River Park & Gardens

 

Guadalupe River Park is a three-mile ribbon of park land that runs along the banks of the Guadalupe River in the heart of downtown San Jose from Highway 880 at the north, to Highway 280 at the south. It is a resource of regional importance to the people of Santa Clara County and the Bay Area. It is composed of many different areas, all of which are summarized and linked to below.

 

IT’S YOUR PARK, GET INTO IT.

 

In the dense urban environment of downtown San Jose, the trails, parks and plazas of the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens not only serve to enjoy and preserve natural ecology, they offer residents and visitors a multitude of ways to recreate, relax, discover and enjoy.

 

Ride, walk run or skate 2.6 miles of trails. Enjoy the public art. Attend a festival, watch the birds, or romp in a playground. Stop and smell the roses, there’s 3,700 varieties to choose from in the Heritage Rose Garden. See the fruit trees that put this valley on the map in the Historic Orchard. Explore the latest in drought tolerant landscaping in the Courtyard Garden. Or cultivate your own plot in the Guadalupe Community Garden. Take a rest at one of the seven Sister City seating areas to simply watch the river flow. Don’t forget to stop by the Visitor Center to sign up for a class or pick up a map.
