The first of several neighborhood parks to serve the new Communications Hill development, William Lewis Manly Park is 1.7 AC of community-serving amenities developed with the City of San Jose.
The park features several areas of activity, gathering, and play. The signature element is a 100′ long artist-created sculptural climbing wall. Careful considerations were made to closely match the form and character of the site’s native stone and a nod to the quarry use of this area.
Amenities dotting the park include a pair of oyster shell bocce courts, outdoor ping pong tables, picnic and bbq area, an outdoor yoga deck, two children’s play areas, open lawn, and a community terrace. Drought tolerant, high traffic plantings ring the park and help to place this unique park into the context of the hillside and adjacent neighborhood.
