This is the place to take in a live show in Campbell, whether a stage play, improv, or comedy performance, or a classic rock concert, and the theater's location in the downtown district, with its many fine dining restaurants and casual eateries, makes "dinner and a show" a popular way to spend Friday or Saturday night. A state historic site and a city landmark, the Heritage Theatre is the brainchild of California architect William H. Weeks, and has served the community as both its historic high school's auditorium, and in more recent years, a center for Campbell's lively performing arts scene.
Residents in Campbell have something to look forward to every month through First Fridays. These fun activities feature different themes chosen by event organizers. All of the activities that take place during First Fridays are all part of the central theme. For example, some of the events that occur include classic car shows, appearances by classic rock bands, decade-themed events, dance performances, and scavenger hunts. The events take place in downtown Campbell in the evening, usually between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. The events are always free to attend and receive sponsorship from the Downtown Campbell Business Association.
Los Gatos Creek Trail
Among Campbell's 13 city parks is Los Gatos, a dynamic venue in which residents participate in a wide range of outdoor activities. The park's ponds are popular fishing holes for locals, and although the trail runs from nearby San Jose through Campbell to downtown Los Gatos on the city's southwest side, the 3-mile section in Campbell is often the busiest, with walkers, runners, cyclists, and dog walkers all utilizing the paved trail daily. The outdoor fitness center, natural, wildlife habitats, and the fenced dog park are also among the feature that make this park one of the most frequented of Campbell's outdoor recreation areas.
