Martial Cottle Park is a new park on a 300-acre historic agricultural farm and a joint planning effort by the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department and the State of California Parks and Recreation Department. PlaceWorks’ team led the public and stakeholder input process and developed the design that features active agricultural uses, recreational trails and amenities, habitat enhancement, and community-serving facilities. Surrounded by urban development, the park provides unparalleled opportunities to educate visitors about sustainable agriculture as well as the family-farming history of the Santa Clara Valley.
