The park is hidden in a residential area right at the base of the hills. People drive right by it and don’t even know it’s there! It’s got an views of the undeveloped (no housing) hills, huge grass area big enough to play soccer, and Higuera Adobe, a registered historic structure built in the 1830s and one of the two oldest buildings in Milpitas — the other being the Jose Maria Alviso Adobe off Piedmont Road.
It’s Jose Higuera Adobe Park in Milpitas! It’s just north of Golfland mini-golf in Milpitas, and just east of I-680, at Wessex Place and North Park Victoria Dr., Milpitas.
There are picnic tables, a BBQ pit, and a playground. You can learn about the history of the Higuera Adobe through the exhibits in the building.
The city of Milpitas spent almost $2 million renovating the park in 2017.
When I lived in Milpitas, I found out about the park when my son’s soccer team held practices there.

Seems like a great place for a wedding and reception!
See ya in Milpitas!
