A new all-inclusive playspace at Almaden Lake Park

The City of San José has been awarded a matching grant from the County of Santa Clara to build an All-Inclusive Playground at Almaden Lake Park. Through the grant funding, the total budget to replace and upgrade the existing equipment is $1.3M. We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to expand the playground beyond grant funding constraints and invest in a Playgarden & Nature Area – creating a space where children and adults of all abilities can gather locally.


The Playgarden Task Force has set a goal to raise an additional $3.5M to reach a $5M fundraising goal to complete Phase 2 of the project. All contributions will be collected through the Playgarden Fund, housed within the Almaden Valley Rotary Club Endowment, a 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax-deductible and 100% of proceeds will go directly to the expansion.


As additional funding is secured, amenities and features such as resilient safety surfacing, a nature play area, a hillside slide zone, additional musical elements, and new restroom facilities will be woven into the landscape design.


With collaboration and support from individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout Almaden Valley and the surrounding areas, the Playgarden and Nature Area will become a reality.
