U: Uvas Creek Preserve

uvas creekThe Dennis DeBell Uvas Creek Park Preserve is a 125-acre greenbelt preserve operated by the City of Gilroy. The Uvas Creek, which meanders through the center of the preserve, is its defining characteristic. The preserve is bordered by Uvas Creek Levee on the north, and by Christmas Hill Park on the south. A paved trail runs for approximately 2 miles along the boundary of the preserve, and can be used for jogging, hiking or bicycling.[1]

The park is open seven days a week from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM from April 1 – October 31, and 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM from November 1 – March 31.[2]
