Fremont Park

July, 2005

Fremont Park's childrens play area is now open. This long awaited opening follows a prolonged period of construction that started fall of 2004. Many residents have expressed concerns that the play area was closed for so long. Overall the new play area is being well received.

Simultaneous with the opening of the children's park, a large part of the park appears to have been subsumed into a Senior Citizens Center building expandsion project. The scope, duration, and final impact to the public park area is not known. Residents should contact the City of Santa Clara with any questions or concerns about the ongoing park construction, and the extent to which additional portions of the the park may be repurposed for non-general public use.
