SCC Spotlight: Los Gatos Creek Trail

It "offers recreational opportunities for walkers, jogger, bicyclists, skaters, non-motorized scooters, bladers and nature lovers. The trails is operated by the County of Santa Clara Park Department, City of Campbell, Town of Los Gatos and the City of San Jose. The trail passes through a number of jurisdictions.

Another great amenity to the trail is the Los Gatos Creek dog park. With artificial turf it's able to withstand the many dogs that love this park. There's shade, seating and water.

The Los Gatos Creek is one of the few urban streams in Santa Clara Valley which remains relatively intact. It is both a riparian corridor for plants and wildlife and is part of an intricate system of water resources and flood protection."

SCC Spotlight: Hellyer County Park

"This 354-acre urban park is located in the heart of Santa Clara County's regional park system. The Coyote Creek, which meanders through the center of the park, is the focus of the park's natural environment. A thick undergrowth and tall trees characterize the well defined creek channel which is home to many different species of wildlife. Visitors to the park can escape from the nearby hustle of city life and enjoy the quiet solitude of Hellyer County Park and the Coyote Creek Parkway."
