Alum Rock Park is San Jose's 716 acre municipal playground and was so named because of the huge rock in the lower part of the canyon that contains a large percontage of alum. The major portion of the Park was originally a part of the public lands to which San Jose became entitled by virtue of its pueblo origin under the Spanish regime. There are 22 active mineral springs in the Park, a large natatorium a plunge, many picnic tables, and numerous hiking paths.
