This is Santa Clara’s own Central Park. All of 50 odd acres, this park in California’s Bay Area is a pretty place, which is well landscaped with lawns, water fountains and all.
The park’s proximity to several residential areas makes it a good place for a stroll, for little ones to bike around, some quiet time for grown ups or even picnics.There are also some play structures for kids and some sport courts.
For some time (when I was pregnant with my second), we had frequented Central Park quite a bit. The pleasing sounds of gurgling water, the sight of water spurting out of the fountains and the ducks that swam the park’s pond made it an inviting place. But in due course, it ceased to be just as much attractive. Last heard: there were plans for a thorough clean up and a face-lift. Good news. (The efforts are probably underway or done already).
Santa Clara’s Central Park is also the venue for Santa Clara’s Art and Wine Festival and the city’s Fourth of July Fireworks. (We went to see the firework in 2013 when the event returned to the park after a 4-year hiatus. I might have pictures to put up in another post.)
