Guadalupe Oak Grove Park Proposed Amphitheater

MFPA has not endorsed this proposal yet but has posted it so that you our readers can express your views on the proposal.

This information concerns our adjacent neighborhood park, the Guadalupe Oak Grove Park.  There is a proposal before the Open Space Authority (SCCOSA) to create an ‘amphitheater’ in the more-or-less open area just west of the rest-room in the GOGP. The amphitheater would be for daytime, youth educational-events.   The amphitheater is in the original, 1987 Master Plan for the GOGP and one can see an ‘concept sketch’ on the information board/kiosk, just west of the restroom.  You may view the proposal at the following URL:

    This is an area that is supposed to be kept as natural as possible while allowing trails for walking and observing nature. This is not an area for an amphitheater.

    When the 1987 plan was made Almaden was not as developed as it is now, now we have more schools in the area, which I am sure could be used after hours for any function that an amphitheater could be used. The area that is mentioned is a breeding place for many song birds, both ground dwelling birds and the trees for the cavity nesters, plus places for the deer to graze and sleep. Butterflies and Hummingbirds come to the native plants in that open area. We need our pollinators more than an amphitheater.

    This should not be considered, it needs to be vetoed once and for all.

    Thanks for posting Rod/Michelle. We share park users and I am confident residents will want to know about the proposed project. Thanks!
