OurWorld: Alum Rock Park

Alum Rock Park in San Jose is said to be one of the oldest municipal parks in California. Dating back to the early 1870s, this park still wears some signs of its historical past.

The landscaped part of Alum Rock park is an area for a family day out with lawns where you can picnic and the kids can play. A good part of the park has been left natural with some trails for some hikes through the Alum Rock Canyon and this part of the Diablo Range.
