Description

At 156 acres, Kelley Park is one of San Jose's most diverse parks. There are many group picnic areas, the History Park is extremely popular, Happy Hollow Zoo is definitely worth a visit for the younger set, and Japanese Friendship Garden is just beautiful.

We have been to Happy Hollow Zoo many times, but this last visit we ventured beyond Happy Hollow and discovered a wonderful park with so much more to offer. My kids had more fun following the train tracks on the east side of the park to the end and then exploring the Japanese Friendship Garden along Senter Rd. on the way back. We were very surprised to discover a 200 seat amphitheater. My kids had fun pretending to be "center stage"/

On our walk through Kelley Park, I didn't see many bathrooms and the ones that I did see were located near major picnic areas. Also, there are several parking lots of varying rates and times off of Senter Rd and near Happy Hollow Zoo. We've always had to pay for parking in the lot off of Senter closest to the zoo- $10, cash only. There are 2 satellite lots further south on Senter past the Friendship Garden, these are $6 cash only. And the newest lot to open is off of Story Rd and Remillard Ct. This lot accepts cash or credit cards, $10.
