  • Always enjoyed coming here. Either for a walk, party or get-together. It has many free range chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks strolling around which is quite unique for a city owned park. It has picnic/party areas which can be reserved for events, vegelution, community farm, large children’s play area, open green area, huge barns, pasture, animal area, international fruit orchard with wide variety of fruits from all over the world. Picnic/party areas can be reserved online or by phone. Below are the available areas with reservation fee for any day. They are super busy with events during the weekends but mostly under booked during the weekdays. Apple Orchard - $110 Citrus Grove - $135 Redwood Grove - $110 Rooster Row - $110 Rose Garden - $175 The Barnyard - Currently Closed Note: No balloons are allowed inside the park if you’re planning to do your event here. History: In 1950s, Emma Prusch donated to the people of San Jose to be preserved as an agricultural park. Best time to visit is early in the mornings when all the animals are in groups and enjoying their freedom. Plenty of parking available and no entry fees. Being in the area this is my go to park.
  • I like going here cause it’s fun to see animals and they have a lot of birds that roam free around the property. They have a section of other animals but the last 2 times we’ve been there they had it closed off, this last time was due to some kind of animal flu that was going around. I get it, but is was disappointing. Hopefully that section will be open next time. The playground is great and the field is awesome too and I like seeing the fruit trees that they have as well.
