San Tomas Aquino/Saratoga Creek Trail
The Open Space Authority allocated $55,000 to the City of Santa Clara in 2000 for the first phase of the San Tomas Aquino/Saratoga Creek Trail. This segment is located near Great America Parkway and Tasman Drive, providing a place for outdoor exercise and recreation to many who work in the area. When completed, the trail will cover 12 miles and provide an alternate transportation route for residents and workers.
Ulistac Natural Area
The Authority has made two allocations totaling $457,953 to the City of Santa Clara for development of the Ulistac Natural Area located on Lick Mill Boulevard along the Guadalupe River. The site offers trails, a native plant garden, interpretive signage for visitors and is also a wetland restoration project. Funding from OSA’s Urban Open Space program contributed toward trail improvements, plant improvements and fencing. The park was dedicated at a community celebration May 12, 2001.
