San Jose Fails To Maintain Almaden Valley Parks

Property owners are outraged at the lack of maintenance in our Almaden Valley parks, as the City of San Jose fails to allocate appropriate funds and staff to keep the parks not only maintained, but safe.

How Does this Affect You??

1) Shabby weed infested parks affect property values.

2) Weeds left to seed are spreading all over the neighborhood. Do you like weeding??

3) The gophers have taken over not only our parks, but have now invaded the yards of many adjacent houses causing damage to homeowner’s landscape. If you like your gardens and want to keep your sprinklers from being chewed like a toy, you’d better hope they don’t make it to your yard.

4) The grass areas you once enjoyed with your families, friends and neighbors are now so demolished by the burrowing holes of rodents that it is unsafe to even walk on without fear of breaking your ankle.

5) You know the big check you just cut for your property taxes??? Well the part of your money that is supposed to pay for the City parks is being allocated elsewhere, while your neighborhood parks suffer. Seem fair?

6) Reminiscing about the day of green lawns before water restrictions? While you conserve, the City of San Jose fails to replace our broken 1980s irrigation system that is corroded, leaks continuously and sprays tens of thousands of gallons of wasted water in the wrong areas as the rest of the turf dries up and dies off. The system is so old that they can no longer find replacement sprinkler heads to replace the broken ones.

Join your fellow Almaden Valley neighbors as they stand up,

and demand the

City Council and Mayor support and maintain our parks.

Together we can make a difference.
