About Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation
Santa Clara County Park’s six decade legacy of providing outstanding recreational opportunities in beautiful natural locations has resulted in one of the largest regional park systems in California. Since the first County parkland was acquired in 1924, the Santa Clara County park system has grown to include 28 regional parks encompassing over 52,000 acres of land.
Our dedicated ranger, maintenance and interpretive staff are necessary complements to the overall park experience, taking an active role in the stewardship of the County’s finest natural resources and waterways especially with the assistance from our 1,400 volunteers who selflessly donate more than 60,000 hours of labor each year.
County Parks are regional parks - located close to home, yet away from the pressures of the valley's urban lifestyle. The parks offer opportunities for recreation in a natural environment to all County residents. Regional parks are larger in size, usually more than 200 acres, than local neighborhood or community parks. Many of the County's regional parks also feature points of local historic interest. We provide a sustainable system of diverse regional parks, trails and natural areas that... connects people with the natural environment, supports healthy lifestyles, offering outstanding visitor experiences that renew the human spirit, while balancing recreation opportunities with the protection of natural, cultural, historic, and scenic resources.
The County offers great benefits and provides you the chance to work with amazing colleagues to support our community.
