Santa Cruz River Park

Santa Cruz River Park

Located along the banks of the Santa Cruz River, the park runs from El Rio Park north of Twin Peaks Road to Silverlake Road. Another section runs from Ajo Way to Drexel Road, which includes El Paseo de los Arboles Commemorative Park on the west bank. The Santa Cruz River Park includes the Anza Trail, part of a National Trail system following the historic route taken by Juan Bautista de Anza on his trek to establish the modern-day city of San Francisco, California.
