In recognition of its unique approach to partnerships and volunteer engagement, San Jose Municipal Rose Garden has been named one of 12 “Frontline Parks,” a nationwide contest sponsored each year by City Parks Alliance.
San Jose Municipal Rose Garden was selected through a peer review process from a field of more than 40 entries across the country.
“To have the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden selected as a Frontline Park by the City Parks Alliance is a great honor for the City, and countless volunteers,” said Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio. “This model of community partnership can be adopted by other cities to leverage their resources as a benefit for all.”
“We selected San Jose Municipal Rose Garden as a Frontline Park because it exemplifies the power of urban parks to build community and make our cities sustainable and vibrant,” said Catherine Nagel, Executive Director, City Parks Alliance. “We hope that by shining the spotlight on San Jose Municipal Rose Garden, we can raise awareness about the ways investment in our nation’s urban parks pays off.”
