New All-Access Play Garden Near Guadalupe River Park

The Downtown San Jose Rotary Club is planning to build an all-access play garden where children with and without special needs can play together. This would be the first of its kind in San Jose about would be located on 4.1 acres near the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens Visitor Center (Coleman and Autumn St.). Special equipment will allow wheelchair accessibility to slides, swings, merry-go-rounds, and other park attractions.

The total cost is going to be $6.35M. Groundbreaking is targeted for the end of 2013 and the opening should happen in 2014.

  2. Children do not need so much expensive stuff. Only water jet under the parental supervision are necessary. Just take care of the river, banks, equipment already there; organize public visit in electric golf cart of the US Army Corps of engineer water management system : it is a huge touristic attraction for San Jose. In Mountain View and Palo Alto, they don't have a Park like that and their Creeks are dry. Save the water first, we drink it.
