22-acres of multipurpose park offers a variety of recreational activities.
From a 5-acre neighborhood park to a 22-acre multiuse area, the development of Greer Park offers a prime example of how a change in housing density can affect recreational facilities. The original five acres were acquired in 1963 and dedicated as Amarillo Park in September 1965. It was renamed John Lucas Greer Park in 1967, in keeping with the policy of honoring Palo Alto historical figures. Originally created as a neighborhood walk-in park, it was expanded to a district-sized park when the area’s population increased drastically with the construction of several large apartment complexes.
