Protecting and Improving the Natural Oak Grove at Thousand Oaks Park
PLEASE NOTE: We will continue to accept donations after the goal has been reached, and that those funds will be used toward further conservation of the oak woodland.
Thousand Oaks Park is a uniquely wonderful part of the City of San Jose Parks system. This grove of Oak Trees extends through the park and into the surrounding neighborhood and adjacent open space. These are majestic, historic, and native Oak trees.
A small group of citizens are working to create a City-recognized park facility in the natural, open space portion of Thousand Oaks Park. Once completed, the site will no longer be at risk for alternative use.
Initially, your donation will support the creation of a permanent walking trail, three benches, educational signage, and a park entrance sign.
Future improvements will include materials to cage and protect oak saplings, native plants islands, including decorative boulders and an oak management plan that will guide future maintenance and preservation of Thousand Oaks Park and its heritage oak grove.
