Westwood Oaks Park



PARK REVIEW

This is a nice, quiet little park (1.5 acres) in Santa Clara. It is a very small park with a small traditional playground, but nice for people who live in the surrounding area. The park is located off of Pruneridge Ave. in a nice neighborhood. If you're looking for a park without a lot of people and kids around, this is the park for you.

 
HOURS -- 1/2 hour after sunset

ADDRESS -- 460 La Herran Drive  Santa Clara
