Gilroy Historic Paseo

A path to Downtown Gilroy’s revitalization

Join in the creation of a revitalized downtown with a new paseo (or walkway) planned for the historic downtown corridor of Gilroy. Designed to conveniently link pedestrians visiting the shops and restaurants on Monterey Street with Gourmet Alley and adjacent parking, the Gilroy Historic Paseo will be more than a thoroughfare—it will be a path through Gilroy’s rich history.

With a community partnership of private and public funding, under the direction of award-winning landscape architect Karen Aitken, the beautifully-designed Gilroy Historic Paseo will welcome tourists and residents alike.

Celebrating Gilroy’s Heritage

Gilroy’s community pride will be reflected in historic murals that tell a visual story of our people, our businesses, and our community. People of all ages will travel through time as they learn about Gilroy’s storied past. Informative kiosks will encourage visitors to discover key landmarks and attractions throughout the area.

Downtown is the heart of the Gilroy community. The historic buildings that line old Monterey Street are now home to unique restaurants, wine bars, antique shops, specialty stores, and other attractions. The Gilroy Historic Paseo will provide a focal point for tourists, a place for children to learn, and a vital connection to Gilroy’s roots for the world to enjoy.
