County Park’s five decade legacy of providing outstanding recreational opportunities in beautiful natural locations has resulted in one of the largest regional park systems in the California. Since the first County parkland was acquired in 1924, the Santa Clara County park system has grown to include 28 regional parks encompassing nearly 45,000 acres of land.
Our dedicated ranger and interpretive staff are necessary complements to the overall park experience, taking an active role in the stewardship of the County’s finest natural resources and waterways –especially with the assistance from our 1,400 volunteers who selflessly donate more than 60,000 hours of labor each year.
