This park was across the street from our hotel. It was enjoyable to see the children playing in the water and wish I could have joined. Seemed popular with local families.

not a must see but if you have time do it, easy walk from downtown san Jose and on hot day kids will enjoy the splash from the fountains

This is a veritable pozole of Chicano culture deep in the heart of San Jose. Children playing and laughing.

A nice central garden and park area. Some nice buildings surround the park too. Interestingly the Turd Statue is labelled as such on my map app! Also saw a red squirrel scampering around!
