  • History of Alum Rock Park
    Alum Rock Park during its early years was known as ĎThe Reservationí. During the first half of 20th century, it was named as Alum Rock Park. But the funniest part of this story is there is no alum in the rocks of this park. People thought that the large rock at the entrance consisted of alum, which was not the case actually, and named the park. Through the 30s of the last century, the place was very popular as a health resort. During 60s, the number of footfalls at the Alum Rock Park increased drastically and as a result, nature was damaged. Now many parts of the park are not open to all.
