Small, peaceful the place to be for 4th in July!

I live close to this park and I like to walk and sit close to the fountain to relax. Be aware that the grass area has a lot of poop from ducks and geese! During the mornings you... read more

It is nice to still find a park that is acutally a park! Trees, grass, playground area for kids and little kids! Very relaxing and a great place to picnic or just relax!

The park is located near the library and the swimming center. When I was there the park was clean and well kept up. There is a central fountain and plenty of paths to walk on. Saratoga Creek runs along the western side of the park. There are no other trails along the creek.

I live nearby so come here many times. I would give this place 5 stars if it didnt have duck poop all around which makes sitting anywhere nearly impossible. - the central library is next to park and is very nice too - good for a stroll or for kids to run around - it has picnic tables too, and...

It is a good place for a walk if you pay a little bit of attention to the birds droppings. It is really nice park for kids.

International swimming center where Mark Spitz trained and Santa Clara Aqua Maids are from. Great meeting places especially the Arts and Wine Festival and the 4th. of July festivities. Central Library is there, baseball, basketball and lots of kids play other ball games. Also has a recreation center that all sorts of activities can be done. For example Junior Theater... More

Nice place to bring kids for a stroll or to see the geese I guess. Watch where you walk though, plenty of geese droppings on the ground haha. Water in the ponds are filthy, so make sure your kids don't go touching it. Plenty of kids here playing Pokemon Go today.

I loved this park, we had my son's first birthday and many other events here. It is spacious and fund for the kids. However, recently there has been a lot of crime. A woman was stabbed sometime last year and when I was there a few weekends ago some cholos started fighting right in our area around small children not... More

Overall a very nice park with plenty of things to do. But charging $10 for event parking for a park in gouging in my opinion. I was going to the BBQ event on Saturday June 25, but I am not going to pay $10 just for the privilege of buying food. Selections below only relate to the BBQ Event I... More

We went to the STEM Event at the library for Super Bowl 50. STEM stands for Science, Technology and Mathematics. We enjoyed listening to the various speakers. There was also technology interactive exhibits and also innovation stations. It was held at the Santa Clara Library. It is part of the park property. We also enjoyed going to the park. It... More
