Happy Hollow is a little amusement/theme park and zoo in San Jose. It has been around for like 50 years...I have friends who are lifetime locals that remember going here as children. Lacking any nostalgic attachment, it's a little strange seeing this place as a grown up. The park is very dated, and the buildings looked like they needed a fresh coat of paint. Food was standard vendor fair. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't anything to rave about either. BUT, I will say the puppet show captured the kids attention, and it was lovely to stroll around the grounds on a nice sunny day.
UPDATE: Happy Hollow is currently closed down for a complete redesign and will be re-opened Fall 2009.
