Alviso Adobe Park Milpitas, California

ALVISO ADOBE HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD PARK

Formerly an apricot farm, the site of the historic Alviso Adobe in the City of Milpitas was converted to a neighborhood park with historic components of an early 1900s orchard/Mexican rancho. Used for special functions, educational events and recreational enjoyment, the park features picnic and seating areas along with barbecues, benches, trash receptacles, restroom facility, apricot orchard and herb garden. Farm fences, farm implement displays, rehabilitated structures and planting restore the historic character to the landscape.
