Downtown Parks and Trails

The new Downtown Parks are now open! A Grand Opening Celebration occurred on Saturday, December 2nd. While the parks are now open to use many small items are still outstanding and require work. 

Please note: The bottom portion of the Rotary Slide at the Nob Hill Trail Park is temporarily closed due to repairs. We anticipate the closure to last at least three weeks, while appropriate repairs are made. The top portion of the slide and the remainder of the park are still open. We hope to have the issues resolved quickly and the slide reopened asap. For information or questions contact Chris Ghione at 408.782.9154.

Three park areas are planned for Morgan Hill's downtown.  After significant community outreach over the last two years the park designs were finalized and the parks were constructed. Designs were developed by Verde Design, Inc. based on initial n concepts developed by Joni Janecki and Associates. The City parks were constructed by Suarez Munuz Construction. The Park Plans are available at the links below:

The Third Street Creek Park can be found on the north side of West Third Street just past the vehicle bridge.  This park and access to the Nob Hill Trail Park are unique in that they are constructed next to existing residences.
