Martial Cottle Park

Martial Cottle Park

The Authority contributed funds towards the County’s efforts to open a new 288-acre urban park on the Martial Cottle Family Ranch. The Cottle family farmed the land for 150 years and the park reflects this agricultural history through providing land for farmers and educational activities. The park also features a trail system and several group picnic areas.

Nido Neighborhood Reforestation

Nido Neighborhood Reforestation

The Authority contributed funds towards the City of Campbell's Nido Neighborhood Reforestation Project, which aims to plant 116 new trees in a disadvantaged neighborhood in Central Campbell. The project will plant new, drought tolerant trees that will increase the quality of life for neighborhood residents, decrease crime, and reduce traffic speeds. These trees will also help decrease storm water runoff, remove pollution from the air, and reduce urban heat.

Ulistac Natural Area

Ulistac Natural Area

The Authority funded two phases of improvements for this 40-acres of open space along the Guadalupe River in Santa Clara, in 1999 and again in 2004. The projects included trail design and construction as well as removal of exotic plant species, revegetation, irrigation, and fence and gate improvements. The park now features native vegetation representing a variety of plant communities connected by a series of trails.
