Baylands Park provides over 70 acres of developed parkland offering active recreation, pathways and picnic areas for families and large groups. An additional 105 acres of seasonal wetlands is protected as a wetlands preserve, providing habitat for plants and wildlife.
Baylands Park is a successful joint venture between Santa Clara County, which owns the property, and the City, which manages and maintains the park.
