San Tomas Aquino Creek Trail Project

For many years, the City of Campbell has been considering the planning and construction of a trail along San Tomas Aquino Creek in the southwest part of the City. This project has long been identified as a priority for the City and its residents – going back to the General Plan, which was adopted in 2001.

The trail alignment being considered would run along the creek between Virginia Avenue and Westmont Avenue (in San Jose).  A trail along this route would have multiple benefits.  It could provide recreational opportunities for residents of the surrounding neighborhood; it could provide a more natural environment for families to take walks or ride bikes; and it could provide for safer routes to school for students of both Westmont High School and Forest Hill Elementary School.
Community Outreach
The City hosted a second neighborhood meeting at Forest Hill Elementary School.  Attendees included approximately 50 residents.

At this meeting, a potential creek trail alignment was shown. The attending public was provided the opportunity to comment on the trail alignment.
