Description

Townsend Park is a great 8 acre park next to San Jose's Municipal Golf Course. The park has fun play structures, an exercise course, horseshoe pit, seating areas shaded by arbors, and two unlighted tennis courts.

We visited the park because San Jose listed it a having a water feature. This is a stretch in my opinion. The water feature that I found is a cement forest that when you push a button, the water trickles down through the forest. You can get a better idea in the fifth picture above. We were a little disappointed.

The play structures really made up for the lack of a good water feature though. My kids enjoyed the train in the sand and the two tot play structures. But what they really enjoyed was the big kid play structure. There was a lot for them to do on it. All of the ways up and down the play structure made for a great game of tag.

The park has lots of grass and two nice tennis courts at the back side, next to the golf course. I like how the park was designed in a circle. I think it's a great use of space. One big down side though is that there aren't any restrooms.
