Large, Relatively New Homes in the $700s
Santa Clara Mission Park - Large,
Relatively New Homes in the $700s
Mission Park homes were built in northern Santa Clara in 1997. The
4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2106 sqft models have high ceilings, separate
dining room, inviting family room with fireplace which leads out to
a large patio area. If you want a house that is over 2000 sqft and
15 years or younger near major employment centers, then Mission
Park might be worth considering.
The schools are Kathryn Hughes Elementary, Buchser Middle, and
Santa Clara High.
The homes have a contemporary style - stucco exterior, tile roof,
central heat and air conditioning.
All this at a cost in the low $700s!!
What's the catch?
Mission Park is right next to Great America amusement park. Between
Great America Park and Lakeshore Drive are massive, hulking
high-voltage towers. People are still debating whether high EMF
poses any health risks. Just north of Lakeshore has some industrial
plant. (I may post photos later.)
Also, it's right under the flight path of planes landing at San
In conclusion, if you don't mind the noise of Great America Park,
high-voltage power towers, industrial plants, then Mission Park
gets you a nice-looking 2-story high-ceiling home in the low

Michael Greenslade (Better Homes & Gardens | Mason-McDuffie Real Estate)
on June 30th 2006 Cedarfair Corp purchased Paramount Parks
including our local Great America theme park in Santa Clara
Cedarfair, a very good theme park company purchased the rather
mediocre Paramount Parks. I am glad to see Cedarfair
take over Great America. On the West coast Cedarfair has
owned Knott's Berry Farm for many years and has done a smashing job
on that park. In the Midwest, the flagship park Cedar Point
Park is one of the best ride parks in the country.
Paramount Parks systematically dismantled everything that was a
theme at Great America. Gone are all the themes of Hometown
Square, County Fair, Yankee Harbor, Yukon Territory and Orleans
Place. Paramount slowly began to install rides tied to
Paramount movies as a cross promotional tool. It did not
work. Invertigo the coaster in County Fair area was tied into
the Face-Off movie with John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Top
Gun was added to Orleans Place to tie in with the Tom Cruise
movie. The Drop Zone tower in County Fair is tied in with
some obscure skydiving movie with Patrick Swayze. Then
there's Survivor the ride. The action 3-D theater that took
up most of what was Yankee Harbor became the Days of Thunder movie
Then there's just the neglect that Paramount tossed into the
works. The Stealth flying coaster only lasted a season or two and
was quickly yanked out of Great America and relocated to
Paramount's Carrowinds park and rebranded with Star Trek's Borg
assimulator. The train that once ran around the park on the
berm that was meant to keep out outside visual intrusions into the
park was removed. The berm quickly followed. The
Hypersonic XL ride was supposed to be installed at Great America
but once again ended up at another Paramount Park Kings Dominion in
Thankfully Cedarfair and their people value a good entertainment
experience. I now have hope that the bay area will get a park
that is of higher quality.
On a side bar note. The San Francisco 49er's are eyeing
the Great America parking lot as the location for their new
The heck with the parking lot. I say drop the new
stadium right dead center of the great america park, salvage what
ever rides they can and start from scratch with entirely new
themes. My concept would be to have open public pedestrian
avenues leading to the stadium. This avenue would be open
year round even when the park is closed. with Hotels,
restaurants and shops. The avenue should start at Tasman
Avenue and work towards the center of the park encounter the
stadium and turn toward Great America Parkway. Parking garages
could be built to bring in close in parking.
One of the new themes could be SPORTS CENTRAL featuring sports
themed rides attractions and shops. An ENTERTAINMENT CENTRAL
could be another theme based around concerts that could be hosted
at the new stadium.
COASTAL BOARDWALK could be another theme for classic coasters
and such (salvaging many existing rides).
WATEROPOLIS could be the "Crocodile Dundee's Boomerang Bay"
water park from the existing park salvaged and relaid out.
Marriott's Great America started out in 1976 as a very nicely
laid out family theme park. Once Great America was sold it
became butchered up. The Great America Park in Gurnee
Illinios suffered a better fate when it was sold to the Six Flags
theme park group. The themes were left pretty much intact
from the original marriott days and even expaned upon with a wild
west area that was planned but never built at the Santa Clara
I will work on a sketch of what I am talking about in a new
