Pat Pizzo’s Bench

Pat helped design the native plant garden at the visitor center in Hellyer County Park. He began the installation in Jan 2020. The garden is evolving and growing. The maintenance staff installed Pat’s bench near the flag pole and under a valley oak at the center.


If you get a chance, please check it out and send energy out to Pat’s spirit thanking him for his vision with this garden. The park is located at 985 Hellyer Ave in San Jose.
