Martial Cottle Park is a true gem available to those who call San Jose home. Honoring the agricultural beginnings of this valley, this park will serve to grow fruit, vegetables, and flowers, to educate the community about agriculture, and as a beautiful place to get some fresh air. Jacobs Farm, a leader in organic farming will be working with the County Parks to farm this land. Martial Cottle Family Ranch was established in 1864 and passed down to descendants until 2014 when the property was signed over to the state and county. Those who called this land in San Jose home turned down large amounts of money from developers and deemed it important to let the public benefit from the history and bounty of the earth.
