This park is between little Italy of san Jose and SAP center. There are signs educating you about history of first inhabitant area of the city and plurality of ethnicities in this city. After 2-3 miles long walk, I stopped to have a cup of coffee in nearby little Italy.

This would be a beautiful area near the heart of down town San Jose, however it has a lot of homeless that hang out down there and panhandle and do drugs, very little police patrolling and dark areas make for a fairly dicey area.

There are much better parks around the bay area to jog/walk/visit. Dry, dirt roads here. Vegetation is pretty much gone. No water in the river. Quite a bit of homeless people hang out here....however they don't cause any trouble.

It was mostly hot and dry walking the trail. Very little water to see because of the drought. There were a lot of ground squirrels and some homeless people.

Had a very long layover and was a very welcome activity to pass the time. Very well maintained and marked trail system passing right by SJC and a nice stroll to downtown. Paved without any elevation changes.....very easy

The pathway alongside the river was (WAS) very special but it hasn't been looked after and is in desperate need of a cleaning up, repair and regular maintenance.

Besides the homeless (which is unlike to bother you), and strava segment hunting bikers, the trail is excellent for running - no traffic, peace and quiet.

While on business I like to head out for a run and see the area. This trail offers a great opportunity to get 5 to 8+ miles in the serenity of a trail in the middle of the city. From downtown you can run along the river to SJ airport and beyond. I turned around at the airport but you... More

This is a good walking park. But beware of your surroundings. There are alot of homeless camps and strangers on the walkway. It is a fairly isolated park so be carful. During busy times many people use this trail. It has been expanded and you can go from downtown past the airport.

From what I saw, Guadalupe River Park was dirty and kind of creepy. I must have missed something if this is actually an attraction.
