This Sunday: Princeton Street Block Party

The CTRA joins Princeton Street and College Avenue neighbors in presenting a “Know Your Neighbors” Family Block Party and Jam Session this Sunday afternoon (October 2) from 1pm to 5pm. Hot dogs, chips, and lemonade provided–bring a side, salad, or dessert to share! Keep it green by bringing your own reusable plate and utensils. Princeton Street will be blocked off between College and California for the duration of the event.

Bring your instruments and voices: there will be a stage set up for anyone who wants to jam or perform. There will be crafts for kids, games, prizes, and more. And, since it’s getting close to Halloween, feel free to come in costume!

All College Terrace residents are invited. Come by, meet your neighbors, and enjoy our neighborhood!

Waterwise Garden Workshop on June 18

Create a garden habitat instead of a lawn! Less water, less work… more fun!

Join us for a Waterwise Garden Workshop next Saturday, June 18, at 9:15am at Mayfield Park (next to the College Terrace Library). This one-hour workshop will be led by Mina Sharma of California Native Plant Society and Ashley Shannon, Senior Water Conservation Specialist at Valley Water (formerly known as Santa Clara County Water District).

  1. Show and tell with examples of California native plants to turn your lawn into a garden habitat.

  3. Valley Water will give out information on lawn removal and rebates.
