“Small Plaza in the heart of downtown San Jose.”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We visited the plaza on a Sunday afternoon. A performance was taking place consisting of children in brightly colored clothing dancing to lively music played by local musicians. Face painters and costumed cartoon figures were entertaining children. Lots of people and lots of pigeons. Nice to walk thru on your way to the Gold Museum, National Theater or Gran Hotel.

“People watching”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

This place is good for 2 things:

1st, watching people and the world go by. there is a lot going on from people having their lunch breaks, days out, performances, selling items (including fake dvds - i would be weary of these) and much more.

2nd, dodging pigeons... there are a hell of a lot of these!

Worth walking through but not too much else.

“Typical city center park”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

This park as gotten a face lift several times since we have lived her and it is due again. There is only so much that you can do to a block square park to make it interesting. It is not worth a special trip to see it.
