Central Park is a beautiful park and a great place to take the kids or just relax. Lots of open space, several areas to barbeque and picnic, and it has two different play areas for the kids. One that totally accommodates the little ones with swings, slides and all and the other area that totally accommodates the older kids. Swings, big slide, and a tall wall where the kids can play and climb. When I lived in San Jose, I would take my son there when he was a year old, now, I live in Santa Clara for about 10 yrs and he is 15 and he still enjoys the play area for the older kids. I have a 3 yr old grandson and he absolutely loves the park. They have a beautiful pond with mallard ducks. The pond isn't as clean as you would want, but you have to remember, there are ducks living in there so it is as clean as can be. On Sundays, between 2pm and 4pm, they have a free concert in the main Pavilion. Music ranges from blues, jazz, 60's, 80's, every Sunday it's something different. The library is right next door to the park so you can make a family day of it. This year we did not make it to the 4th of July festivities, but we were able to see the fireworks from our place. Yes, parking is crazy during 4th of July, but people find parking down side streets, in library parking lot, in St. Jude's parking lot behind the park. This may cost money to park but money goes toward the church/school.
