What are some nice parks that require a reservation located in San Jose, California?

My godson is going to be having a birthday party in a few weeks and I need to know some really good parks in the area. Even areas just outside of San Jose would work i.e. Campbell or Cupertino. Thanks

    Jack Fischer Park

    "Beautifully kept part with water fountains: Wonderful open space for games and picnics but the real attraction is the playground. Options for all ages, you'll be drawn to the large sandbox with small water slide and a water fountain that sprays up from the ground and though a tunnel for kids. Besides the quality of the park, the neighborhood is such that you'll always find new friends for kids."

    Marijane Hamann Park

    Almarida Dr, San Jose, CA 95128

    "Love it: I just love this park. I love that it has a toddler area that is enclosed, so you don't have to worry about your child running off. And there are bathrooms with toilet paper and paper towels! They've also got great swings and another play structure for older kids. The map on this is incorrect. It's on N. Central, not Almarida."

    Hands down, I would recommend Kelly Park. It is a great place for kids and adults. Home of the Happy Hollow Zoo, Japanese Friendship gardens, Beautiful Koi ponds and waterfalls, narrow gauge train, historical buildings, and lots of parkland with picnic tables. Reservations are available for large groups, or you can rent out the hall or the Japanese tea house. During the week you can park for free. So check it out.
