Alum Rock Park
If you enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, from horseback riding to picnics, from cycling to playing with the kids, then this park is for you. It has been around forever. Up at the end of Alum Rock Avenue, the park is buried in the foothills east of San Jose; on the drive there, you pass some impressive mansions. There are playgrounds and miles of trails. It is a very natural setting in which to enjoy leisure activities. Admission is free.
Alum Rock has something for everyone! There is great hiking trails, BBQ areas, a creek for kids to play at..on weekends they even have rangers out with various animals found in the park! its a great place to spend to an afternoon.

Great place to bring kids for a picnic and playground experience, visit the nature center and learn about the wild animals in the park.
Trails provide short and long hike options for family adventures.
