The Conservancy

WE ARE the volunteers, citizens, business people, and board members who give our time and talents to act as stewards for Guadalupe River Park and Gardens. We are the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy.

 

WE SEE an active, iconic, world-class central park. Our vision encompasses gardens, trails and parks where natives and visitors alike can enjoy open spaces and natural habitats. We see a hub for social interaction, a retreat from urban life, and a place to come together for education, to honor our heritage, for colorful festivals and for physical fitness. We see our unique urban parkland as a flowing ribbon of opportunity – for our economic stimulation, and enhancing the quality of our lives. We see our park as the living centerpiece of a thriving San Jose.

WE CONNECT people with the park. We manage volunteers, we activate programs, we raise awareness, and with that, we raise funds. With careful consideration of The City’s needs, we spearhead and execute the completion of the Guadalupe River Park’s Master Plan.

 

We are the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy. Welcome to your park.
