2018 Bond and Levy

Parks staff has begun working on everything from strengthening safety and security efforts and increasing park maintenance, to planning park renovations and the creation of new parks in underserved areas. Recreation is moving forward with big renovations and expansions of their own. Learn more.

Amazon Trail Reconstruction

The popular Amazon "Adidas" Trail receives a tremendous amount of use and is in need of a complete reconstruction. The stretching station, lighting and shelter are also in need of replacement. Work on this well-loved trail is scheduled to take place in Summer 2020, following the Olympic Trials.

This undeveloped 35-acre park site has big potential. Let us know how you envision Santa Clara Community Park at one of our community workshops or through our online public surveys.
