Breathtaking, tranquil views can be found moments from the rush of city life at Santa Teresa County Park
Description - The Environmental Resources Agency's Department of Parks and Recreation administers the County's parks and recreation programs; operates and maintains the 27 diverse developed parks; and works with cities, special park districts, contiguous counties and the State of California to develop complementary park and recreation programs. Its mission is to provide, protect, and preserve regional parklands for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of this and future generations.

Attractions - County Parks offer a wide variety of interpretive services. As each park is unique, so is each park's interpretive program. Many parks regularly schedule guided walks, nature programs, or campfire programs during the spring and summer months, while others maintain visitor centers, outdoor exhibits or nature trails for year-round, self-serve interpretation at the visitor's leisure.

Recreation - Discover Santa Clara County Parks! Here you will find intriguing historical sites, trails for all abilities and uses, spectacular scenery, expansive open areas for picnicking and play, nature study, a full palette of camping opportunities, and water sports that suit every appetence.

Climate - Climate in the San Francisco Bay area varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.

Location - The many and varied regional parks are scattered throughout the County of Santa Clara, south and east of the San Francisco Bay.
