Future Flea Market Park

This multi-purposed 3.5-acre park will be a central gathering landmark for the Market Park neighborhood. Together with nearby small parks and trails, the future Flea Market Park is part of a significant open space network for a planned 2,800 residential units, offices and retail facilities.

For the Future Flea Market Park, HMH designed a large, central, multi-use lawn area bordered by a variety of amenities: tot lot, playground, BBQ and dining areas, and a parkour course. The lawn typography is stepped to create broad amphitheater-like seating. A native planting area contains both a hummingbird garden and a Zen-inspired mediation garden. HMH has infused the park with local history through sculptures, artifacts and the design of a main plaza. Inspired by San Jose’s once-dominant agricultural orchards, HMH utilizes a grid of trees on the park’s plaza, which frame tables, seating, lawn sports courts and barbeques. HMH landscape designers incorporated community input into the park design.
