Description

Guadalupe River Park is a premier San Jose Park. It's 3 miles long and 120 acres total. The park stretches from Highway 880 in the north to Highway 280 in the south. It's named for the river it runs along- the Guadalupe River.

You can run, skate or bike 2.6 miles of trails through 5 unique areas of the park- Guadalupe Gardens, Discovery Meadow, McEnery Park, Arena Green, and Confluence East. Enjoy the playgrounds at McEnery Park or Arena Green. Smell the roses at the Heritage Rose Garden- there's 3,700 varieties there to choose from. At the Historic Orchard, visit the fruit trees that put San Jose on the map. Or simply take a rest at one of the seven Sister City seating areas to watch the river flow.

The pictures on this page are from the play area at the Arena Green. It's located between Santa Clara Street on the south, Julian Street on the north, and directly across Autumn Street from HP Pavilion. There is a fun big kid play area with many challenging climbing opportunities between nets, domes, and waves. The little kid play area is right next the big kid area, however, it's fenced in. I liked that there are many benches next to the play area and lots of trees for great shade.

Many people may recall that the Children's Carousel is located at Arena Green too. Sadly, the carousel has been temporarily closed due to city budget cuts. Hopefully, funding can be found to restore its operation.
