In September 2007 the City of Campbell dedicated a trail development and revegetation project that offers the public a small oasis in a busy urban neighborhood. An allocation of $109,000 from the Open Space Authority helped fund trails, landscaping, and benches on the site of percolation ponds along Hacienda Avenue.

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.
