Jenny Strand Park



 

PARK REVIEW

Jenny Strand Park is a very nice, little (5 acre) neighborhood park. It's quite small, but perfect for people who live in the surrounding area. The playground equipment is the older wooden style, but it is in good condition. The park is in the back of a neighborhood, but it backs up to I-280, so there was a lot of traffic noise. Since it's such a small park, there are not a lot of people here. There is a basketball court and tennis courts.



HOURS -- Closes 1/2 hour after sunset

ADDRESS -- 250 Howard Drive, Santa Clara, CA 95051
