San Jose offers no formal public space or facilities for children and youth to constructively spend their time. The only place they have to play is an 18mx14m schoolyard. Where organized team sports, such as soccer or baseball exist, the teams have to travel 20 minutes to get to a playing field. San Jose has identified the need for a community park.
