This layer was created as an update the existing San Jose Parks Layer (PRK.PARKS). The existing layer has been maintained by the City of San Jose Department of Public Works and had not been updated in some time. This layer is a draft as of (05.02.2014) and has not been fully reviewed to assure complete accuracy of boundaries. Nevertheless it is an improvement over the existing layer and has had park boundaries adjusted to reflect PRNS management authority to the curb and gutter. This layer is also primarily based upon satellite imagery and visible property lines with the Santa Clara County parcel layer used as a guide in certain circumstances where boundaries could not be identified. The PRK.PARKS layer on the other hand , appeared to be based upon the Santa Clara Parcel layer, which did not include sidewalk and curb areas of the parks. In addition many parcel maps features included sections of roadway or overlapped into neighboring properties when compared with the aerial. Park chains have yet to be reviewed and revised. It is our intent to adjust these features to show only secured or quasi-government lands in which development in unlikely to occur. In addition, park chain lands may be adjusted to reflect underpasses where trails and public access is permitted.
