In the midst of the busy, bustle of the city, the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy serves to protect and preserve Guadalupe River Park, providing a unique getaway for those who live in San Jose. With over 250 acres of park, there is plenty of nature for everyone to enjoy from festivals, birdwatching, hiking, gardening, playgrounds, yoga and more.
San Jose property owners can jump in and join the Guadalupe Conservancy in many of their monthly volunteer programs designed to maintain this beautiful oasis. Volunteers are welcomed for River Clean up and for helping to maintain the Historic Orchard in the garden area of the River Park. The Conservancy oversees many educational programs in the park as well. Residents who live in San Jose can learn how to replace their lawns, participate in the Salmon and Trout Education Program (S.T.E.P.), and enjoy the sweet scents and vibrant flowers blossoming in the Heritage Rose Garden.
The Guadalupe River Park is home to the very first community garden to be irrigated with recycled water, with a section of the garden used for educational demonstrations by a conservancy gardener. The caring individuals comprising the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy are dedicated to the preservation of this gem of nature hidden in San Jose.
