Nice park in San Jose. We went at night. Only had a bit of time for a photo. It looked clean. Lots of people since it was after work and everyone was commuting from their jobs. Lots of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Park is near food, retail shops, museums and churches.
Very nice, small City Park. You hear the parrots in the trees, see the red squirrels. Go inside the beautiful church. Very safe and clean. Locals are very nice people.
