Three Creeks Trail

Three Creeks Trail

The Authority contributed two separate awards totaling $3,235,000 toward the purchase of land along the former Union Pacific railroad in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose. The City of San Jose plans to develop this land into a landscaped and paved “Three Creeks Trail,” named because it will connect three creek trails: the Los Gatos Creek Trail, the Guadalupe Creek Trail, and the Coyote Creek Trail. The trail is currently open in an interim state. For more information, visit the website.
