About Santa Clara County Parks & Recreation
Santa Clara County was established in 1850; the same year California became a state. Once promoted as the "Valley of the Heart's Delight" after two centuries of an agricultural economy is now more widely known as "Silicon Valley" due to the explosion of technology companies over the past 50 years. The valley is currently home to approximately 6,500 high tech companies and over 2 million residents. It is situated at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay.
The County's five decade legacy of providing outstanding recreational opportunities in beautiful, natural settings has resulted in one of the largest regional park systems in California. Supported by the Park Charter Fund, the County Parks Department is operated outside the General Fund and enjoys wide support by residents and visitors alike.
Our mission: Provide, protect and preserve regional parklands for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of this and future generations. Since acquiring our first park in 1924, the system has grown to include 29 regional parks encompassing nearly 60,000 acre of land.
