PARK REVIEW

Rainbow Park is one of the brightest & cheeriest parks in San Jose! The playground is a rainbow of colors. One unique feature is the different colored poles surrounding the playground area that say the names of the colors in multiple languages. The park is rather small, but lots of fun can be had here!
