Bowers Park

 

 
PARK REVIEW

Bowers Park is a small (7 acre) park within a moderate neighborhood. It is a nice quiet park. I like the tree-lined path that leads to the playground. Other amenities include two baseball fields, picnic areas (with BBQ pits), restrooms and a tree covered multi-use area.

 
HOURS -- Closes 1/2 hour after sunset

ADDRESS -- 2585 Cabrillo Avenue, Santa Clara, CA 95051
