Santa Teresa County Park is located in the south of San Jose and is a great place to spend a day outdoors. This 1674 acre (677 hectares) park has a network of long winding trails that are perfect for casual hikers and bikers. A walk through the park in the spring is a real treat because of the beautiful wildflowers that bloom along the many park trails. There also are a number of tables and benches through the park that can be used for day picnics. The park is serene and peaceful and an escape from the bustle of urban life.
