About the Project

Memorial Park is at the heart of Cupertino - hosting numerous community and civic-focused events. It is the largest and most well-used park in Cupertino. The 22-acre site includes a lawn ideal for family picnics, a gazebo, an amphitheater, a lighted softball field, and six lighted tennis courts. Memorial Park is adjacent to the Cupertino Senior Center, Quinlan Community Center, and Cupertino Sports Center, and the park houses the Cupertino Veterans Memorial which honors local veterans.

The Memorial Park Specific Plan project aims to improve the facility and determine how to best meet the future recreation, community gathering, event, and green space needs of Cupertino. The Parks and Recreation System Master Plan’s vision for the park highlights the expansion of the civic event space and community hub experiences by providing a unifying focus on the surrounding existing City facilities, and by enhancing natural site features. This Plan will enhance Memorial Park’s unique identity, create a sense of place and grow a unique expression of the Park to achieve a balance between the built and natural environments.

The resulting Memorial Park Specific Plan will further the goals and priorities identified in the Parks and Recreation System Master Plan, including:

  • Restore and preserve natural habitat
  • Maximize shade
  • Develop walkways and bikeways that further connectivity
  • Provide environments that foster social cohesiveness and diverse activities for all ages and abilities
  • Create high-quality recreation experiences
  • Provide sustainable facilities, programs, and services that benefit our economic and ecological health

The Park's Specific Plan is developed with input from the Community, Commissions, and the City Council. Our team has reached out via online and in-person meetings to get your feedback and comments.

    We've received a great outpouring of support for more pickleball at the park and we're taking it under consideration.

    Thanks! We've polled the public on numerous occasions and that did not rise to the top of the requested amenities. We will do what we can to make sure all ages have something to do at the park though. (Very good comment!)

    As part of the design process, noise and parking studies have been done. The final environmental report will include final versions of these studies. The playgrounds, pickleball courts and sports areas will be three different areas of the paark.

    Apologies - that seems to indicate you didn't receive the postcard in a timely manner (and I did not see these questions either)... we do want community enggement and will continue to work to improve our outreach. Hopefully you've found other ways to reach us - email is a great option.

    The existing parking conditions will remain, with the addition of a small amount of parking to facilitate large events and ADA/accessible parking. Currently, and in the future, when large events occur, De Anza College parking is used.
