Mission Statement

The mission of the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department is to provide, protect and preserve regional parklands for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of this and future generations.


Since 1924, when Stevens Creek County Park was established, people have given their time and talents to help make Santa Clara County Parks special places to visit. In 2010, nearly 2000 volunteers donated over 40,000 hours of service to a variety of projects and programs.

This is my first time volunteering with this organization. This was not only labor of love, this event also taught me about the struggles County is facing to provide beautiful and safe parks for all of us to enjoy. While working to wack the weeds, joggers and visitors showed us their appreciations and respects. This is definitely very educational to my daughters who came along. An very worthwhile experience working together with very friendly and caring Park Ranger.
