Downtown San Jose is dotted with gardens and little parks, but this one really has something special. It's a popular meeting place for young people, so it's very lively, and you'll often find people playing guitar, dancing, or just sitting on a bench with their partner. A nice place to go people-watching.
This is one of the most beautiful parks in the whole city. A great place to go for a bit of fresh air, in a city where the car traffic is particularly heavy. The park is also home to birds, who will delight you each morning with their melodic singing, and a small market on Sundays.
