 All City Picnic and Fireworks Extravaganza

Come celebrate Independence Day at the All City Picnic, held in scenic Central Park, located at 909 Kiely Boulevard from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. Bring a picnic lunch or purchase all-American foods prepared by local community groups. Sit back, relax, and enjoy live entertainment at the Pavilion. Kids can have fun too with carnival games, face painting, and swimming at the International Swim Center.
The event begins in the Pavilion with a welcome from our Mayor Jaime Matthews and a Flag Dedication Ceremony by the Veterans Post 419 Honor Guard. The fun will continue into the evening, so bring your blankets and lawn chairs to the lawn area adjacent to the Community Recreation Center, where there will be music, a variety of food booths and food trucks, followed by a patriotic fireworks display at 9:30 pm. See the schedule for the day HERE.

 Central Park Pond Improvement Project

Have you noticed all the work going on in Central Park?  Come check it out!  The City of Santa Clara Water & Sewer Utilities and the Parks & Recreation Department have completed a major improvement project at the Santa Clara Central Park Pond. This revitalization of the Central Park Pond utilizes recycled water and a natural filtration system that keeps the pond water clean and provides a healthy, productive and bio-diverse environment. You are invited to celebrate the completion of this beautification of Central Park at a ribbon-cutting ceremony, which will take place at the Central Park Pond at 12:30 pm.  Come by and stay for the All City Picnic (information above).  Click HERE to see how the system works!
