Took my 6 year old granddaughter there. She LOVED it! The folks who work there just want to make sure that you have a good time. Highly recommended

We enjoyed browsing through hundreds of exhibits and landscaping products and services all in one place. We took our grandchildren along too as we were babysitting and wanted to introduce them to the finer things in life - gardening.

The zoo, the San Jose Giants Stadium, Discovery Park, the Japanese Garden, the Portuguese Museum & Kelley Park are all within walking distance. If you're planning on visiting one of the sites, plan on them all while you are there.

Great park with a lot of history and a petting Zoo that will melt even an old codgers heart. Popular foe family reunions for good reason.

This is a lovely zoo. Not so big that you get worn out, but it has interesting animals and is very pretty. Beautiful merry go round and a nice gift shop. Not a great place to find food, though.

Bring them to Kelly Park, that's the thing to do ,, though they do charge for Parking :-( enjoy the park and extensive Japanese Garden/Pond and then go to Happy Hollow for rides and a visit to the small animal zoo collection :-)

Nice walking trails, you can spend an hour or several hours with family and friends or solo. You do have to pay to park.

For the country's 10th largest city this is a disappointing zoo type attraction.. OK for locals but not for tourists..

It's a large park, with old historic buildings, an old-time set of stores, a candy shoppe, a building like a hotel, so nice to walk around.

We went to both the Japanese Garden and the History center on a Fall weekday. Both were peaceful. The garden has some beautiful spots and the History Center has some nice old buildings, but our entire group was underwhelmed. We would have loved to go...More
