(BCN) — San Jose city leaders will be on hand Tuesday to break ground on Newbury Park, a site within the mixed-use residential area that will boost the recreational needs of the neighborhood, officials said.

The development is located on the northeast corner of North King Road and Dobbin Drive in an area that was formerly industrial but is transitioning to high-density residential.

Much community input went into the parks design, the city said, and it will include a turf area for open space use, a play area for children ages 5 to 12, benches, picnic tables and landscaping.

At the ground breaking will be District 3 Councilmember Raul Peralez; Neil Rufino, assistant director of parks, recreation and neighborhood services; and Matt Cano, director of public works.

The event takes place at 1700 Newbury Road from 11 a.m. to Noon.
