San Jose Heritage Rose Garden

The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden is part of the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens. Boasting of a motley of more than 2500 varieties of roses in diverse hues, this garden is a delight with young children, families and couples alike. Whether you choose to follow the short trails, have a picnic amid the colorful flowers or just walk slowly with your loved one, admiring the roses, you are sure to have moments of unbridled peace. The garden is maintained through the efforts of volunteers and rose lovers can either choose to volunteer or adopt a rose for a small fee. This garden also provides group tours and free pruning lessons.

Alum Rock Park

Established in 1872, the Alum Rock Park is by far the oldest municipal-operated urban park in all of California. Located at a distance of just 6.3 miles (10.2 kilometers) from the heart of San Jose's urban surroundings, this oasis of greenery is clasped on the slopes of Diablo Range's verdant valleys. Spanning nearly 720 acres (291.37 hectares), the park's grounds are traversed by the roads and trails of Alum Rock Falls, Calaveras Fault, and Sierra, making every corner of its protected lands accessible for avid hikers. The park is dotted with classical wood-carved trail signs that add a rustic vibe to your overall outdoor experience. Wildlife includes red-tailed hawk, Cooper's hawk, turkey vulture, black-tailed deer, and mountain lions.
