Guadalupe River Park And Gardens - Review
San Jose is that gorgeous city with its extraordinary number of parks and gardens. This lovely park and garden area is another addition to the many amazing, verdant places to see in the city.
This park is surprising because it runs along the Guadalupe River on the highway. Even amidst the modern city, this green park is a lovely retreat. Around 2.6 miles of walking area consisting of several trails makes this park a lovely place to visit.
There is an orchard, places to sit and even picnic areas. The Heritage Rose Garden is also within the premises. So there is a lot to see and do inside this area. Be sure to visit it with the kids.

Guadalupe River Park And Gardens, San Jose Reviews
Great outdoors space to view the Fourth of July fireworks show. It does get very full, so allow plenty of time to find a spot. The fireworks begin around 9:30 and we arrived around 7 and it was pretty full by then already. There is a live band for entertainment and there are some vendors selling treats around the vicinity. You absolutely need a blanket or chairs to make yourself comfortable and be prepared to share a bit of your personal space. Great atmosphere overall though.
The play ground area is great for all ages. Even the little guys can enjoy their day there. We take our 18ninth old grandson the often. The floor/ ground off the play ground area is padded rubber so it cushions the falls of the little guys. Is actually what finally have my grandson the confidence he needed a few months ago to start walking on his own. His Nana and I also enjoy the winding paved paths behind the play ground for our daily walks. It's a great tranquil place to get away from some of the city sounds and enjoy nature a bit. Beautiful well kept rose garden is a plus.
I needed a place to take my kids for electric scooter rides. We rented Lime-s and rode from the SAP center to the airport and back. Had to cross roads 2 times and switch sides to keep on the trail but it was overall a pleasant experience. An exception was the homeless people camped from which there was a stink. Also I kept close to my kids. I know the homeless need a place but I don't see why my tax dollars are wasted like this. Do we need a new city mayor ? This place has great potential to be something amazing and a nice place for joggers bikers and others to enjoy. I would still recommend it for guys and kids with adult supervision. The highlight of our trip was a stop in little Italy for some amazing coffee and gelato.
This is a great place to bring the family or your pet; though it is not fenced so make sure your pet is trained before letting them off leash. Tons of areas to speed out, have picnics, or play sports.
The nature center in the park was nice , but some of the displays were broken. The park itself was full of trash, and obviously the overgrown areas used as camping spots for homeless people. I don't want them to be kicked out ! It's a sad reflection of the poverty and homelessness crisis in California, where there is so much wealth and yet so many without enough to get by..
