Downtown West Events: Mural Celebration, Walking Tour & Creek Clean-up

To kick off the beginning of summer and celebrate San Jose City Council’s approval of Downtown West, we are supporting some of our community partners in a day full of activities on Saturday, June 26. The Downtown West team will also be onsite debuting a self-guided walking tour of the project site, including a special viewfinder displaying illustrative renderings to view as you walk around.

We encourage you to join one or both of these events:

South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition (SBCCC) will host a creek clean-up at Arena Green from 9 - 11 a.m. PDT on Saturday, June 26. SBCCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to reclaiming, restoring and revitalizing the creeks and rivers in the Santa Clara Valley watershed.

Valley Verde is a San José-based nonprofit focused on increasing self-sufficiency, health, and resilience through a culturally informed community based food system to promote food justice. Local Color is a woman-powered non-profit organization that keeps creatives engaged, employed and active in our community. Together these two community-based organizations are excited to invite the community out to enjoy a food truck and live music.
