New Downtown Signs

Several new signs have been added across Downtown San Jose to encourage people to get out of their cars and discover attractions by foot. Some of the areas highlighted are the SAP Center, Little Italy, St. James Park, and of course San Pedro Square.

The signs are part of the Walk (Your City) wayfinding project that was sponsored by the Knight Foundation. The signs are currently on Santa Clara and St. John streets but will soon be expanded to several neighborhoods in San Jose. There should be nearly 50 of these signs up before the project is complete. For more information (and to submit feedback), head over to the Walk [San Jose] website over here.

  1. I would love to see something like the cultural trail in Indianapolis built in San Jose to get people out of their cars walking and biking.

    I think it would be a great way to connect all of the different neighborhoods without having to get in a car.

    1. About the Indy Culture trail:

      "...through a public-private partnership, completed the construction of an eight-mile, separated facility that forms a loop around downtown with spurs to connect five cultural districts and neighborhoods, as well as the city’s greenway system.”

  2. I give it a month before they're completely covered in graffiti and stickers.
