This beautiful and culturally significant 4.5 acre park site is located just minutes from the cities of Gilroy and Morgan Hill.

The park features the beautiful Uvas Creek and a wealth of cultural artifacts including bedrock mortars and petroglyphs left by the native people who occupied the area for thousands of years.

The park includes a self-guided interpretive walk and an interpretive shelter focusing on tribal culture which was located on this property for who knows how long.
