Sunnyvale's newest neighborhood park in nearly 30 years opens in July

Under the newly planted palm trees sits a pirate ship with bongo drum cannons and a sea monster slide. Under your feet, the springy playground flooring transitions from the color of sand to foamy light blue and finally a deep ocean blue. Sea creatures are scattered across the sea floor, welcoming young seafarers to come play.

It's Sunnyvale's newest park that will officially be opened July 12, built to be an oasis within the urban sprawl of the city. Seven Seas Park is the first city-developed neighborhood park since Encinal Park was dedicated in 1987 in north Sunnyvale.


In February 2010 officials found traces of lead-arsenate, a type of pesticide used in agriculture, in the soil, but the city worked with the Department of Toxic Substances Control on the soil remediation.
