I am pleased to announce that the City of San José will be acquiring property in District 1 to construct a new park. Located at 3257 Payne Avenue, it is currently the home of the Pueblo De Dios Church, with an existing community garden and KaBOOM! Playground. This property will be able to accommodate an approximately 1.9-acre park in the future.
As many of you know, District 1 is one of the most park-deficient areas in San José, and is also almost entirely built out, with little existing open land. This parkland will be a tremendous asset to the community, and the first new park in District 1 in many years.
