This used to be one of the Crown Jewels of a wonderful downtown revitalization. I always look forward to a morning run along the river. It has been 3 years and what a disgrace for it to fall into such disrepair. The once beautiful walking,...More

The "River Park" is a bit misleading since it's more like a series of parks along the Guadalupe River (*cough* stream *cough*). I've been coming to San Jose for a few years now and I've always enjoyed a good run down the river trail, but...More

The river was in full raging flow when I visited! It was winter and yes the area was showing signs of wear but equally there are nice paths along the river. The down and outs were fairly numerous but despite being a single woman I...More

Paved paths make this a pleasant place to visit, and the trees and landscape are very attractive. You can bring your dog on a leash.

Having looked at this walk on the website we were looking forward to a stroll in San Jose. Picked up the trail in the middle of the City and it was dreadful. Full of rubbish, homeless people camped out and generally felt very unsafe. Give...More

This would be a beautiful area near the heart of down town San Jose, however it has a lot of homeless that hang out down there and panhandle and do drugs, very little police patrolling and dark areas make for a fairly dicey area.

There are much better parks around the bay area to jog/walk/visit. Dry, dirt roads here. Vegetation is pretty much gone. No water in the river. Quite a bit of homeless people hang out here....however they don't cause any trouble.

It was mostly hot and dry walking the trail. Very little water to see because of the drought. There were a lot of ground squirrels and some homeless people.
