The City will mark the opening of Sunnyvale’s newest park, Wiser Park, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication. Join Loren Wiser’s family members; Sunnyvale Mayor Glenn Hendricks and councilmembers; City Manager Kent Steffens and other City staff; representatives from The Vale and other distinguished guests to celebrate the park’s grand opening.
Wiser Park Grand Opening
When: Saturday, Nov. 3, 10 to 11 a.m.
Where: Wiser Park at the Vale Development, Corner of E. Duane Avenue and Deguigne Drive
Wiser Park is a new one-acre City park on Deguigne Drive near The Vale, a new townhouse community. The Vale’s developer, Landsea Homes, funded and constructed the park, which the City will now own and maintain.
Visitors to Wiser Park will enjoy exercise equipment, barbecues and picnic tables, an open grass area and a half basketball court. This grand opening ceremony will mark the official opening of the new park to the public.
Earlier this year, the City solicited ideas from the community for the park’s name. In July, the City Council considered the nominations and voted unanimously to name the park for Loren Wiser, a longtime City arborist who died in 2007 after battling leukemia. Loren was remembered for his passion and dedication to the City’s parks and urban forest.
This is the third park the City has opened in the last five years, adding seven acres of new open space to the City’s park system. Seven Seas Park was opened in July 2014 and Swegles Park was opened in August 2013.
