Gilroy

Gilroy is the "Garlic Capital of the World" and home of the annual Garlic Festival in July.  Other Points of Interest are Gilroy Gardens and CordeValle Golf Club.

Historically, Gilroy's economy has been based in agricultural products and processing. Over the years, prunes, tomatoes, flowers, onions and, of course, garlic, have contributed to the economic health of the agricultural industries. Food processing centers have also established themselves in Gilroy, and government centers also employ many local residents. The Outlets at Gilroy, a five-phase retail complex, draws shoppers from all over the Bay Area and Central Coast regions. 

Fourteen other cities complete the Santa Clara County's personality. Palo Alto marks the northern terminus of the urban/industrial chain known as Silicon Valley. In between are the urban and suburban communities of Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino and Campbell. To the northeast is Milpitas, and to the southwest are the charming hillside villages of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Saratoga, Los Gatos, and Monte Sereno. Crowning the agricultural South County are Morgan Hill, unincorporated San Martin, and, of course, Gilroy.

Gilroy's climate strikes a pleasant balance between hot and cold, wet and dry, making it perfect for agriculture and recreation. Nestled between the Diablo and Santa Cruz mountains in the Santa Clara Valley, Gilroy residents enjoy mild temperatures, while missing most of the coastal fog. 

Gilroy has 12 parks, from 1/8 to 125 acres in size. Gilroy has won more park design awards from the California Park and Recreation Society than any other city in California, including awards for Christmas Hill Park (home of the Garlic Festival), Las Animas Park, San Ysidro Park, and El Roble Park. New facilities include two neighborhood parks adjacent to Luigi Aprea School and Rod Kelley School. 

Regional and State Parks in the Gilroy vicinity include Mt. Madonna Park (3,039 acres) to the west, Uvas Canyon Park (1,049 acres) to the north, and Coe State Park (32,000 acres) to the east. In addition, Anderson, Calero, Chesbro,       Uvas and Coyote reservoirs are all nearby, offering a full complement of water-related sports and recreational       activities.
