Stayed at the Holiday Inn and had a view of the park. Very noisey at night with lots of teenagers hanging around and playing music and dancing on the stage. Lots of security around, never felt in danger.

We were pleasantly surprised that this park and structure was across from out hotel. The Templo was occupied most days by young people making music and dancing--often practicing their steps. Fun to walk in he park and stop to watch.

Sort of the San Jose version of NYC's Washington Square, you can often catch some local music and gathering of hipsters, skateboarders, and such. Although in an area that could be considered "sketchy", I was fine eating my lunch and checking out the local color....More
