SJ - Carousel @ Arena Green

Doubling back to the freeway, I found Arena Park adjacent to Guadalupe River Park. After two crazy crowded hours at the Chinese New Year Family (FREE) Day at the SJ Museum of Art, it was nice to be outdoors and away from crawling masses vying for position. A lovely day in the neighborhood...and then I saw the Children's Carousel!! Very cool, and it

includes 33 beautifully-painted fiberglass animals, six of which were custom-made for San Jose.  The hummingbird, coyote, salmon and eagle represent species indigenous to the area, and two sharks celebrate the San Jose Sharks NHL ice hockey team.
