VENUE SYNOPSIS

Featured by Good Morning America in 2010, this is the house that Sarah, the troubled Winchester rifle heiress, built. Seeking a way to rid herself of the spirits of those killed by the “Gun that Won the West,” Sarah sought the advice of a medium. That consultation resulted in Sarah spending decades, as well as her $20 million inheritance, obsessively building onto the house. With its architectural oddities designed to disturb, confuse and evade these restless spirits that haunted her (such as  stairways leading to nowhere, a chimney that rises only 4 floors and windows opening to walls) millions of visitors agree this beautiful historic treasure is among the most haunting and haunted places on earth. Santana Row and Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Center, across the street and 2 blocks away respectively, offers post-tour options for retail, restaurants and relaxation.

VENUE SYNOPSIS
 
With its unique combination of children’s rides, amusements, historic puppet theater and an accredited Zoo with over 150 animals, Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is a whimsical escape for conference and event attendees as well as a wonderful host venue for special events and meetings.
 
Among its many animals, the zoo includes a number of endangered lemur species, capybara, a jaguar and is 1 of 22 facilities in the United Sates (and the only Zoo in the Bay Area) to exhibit the endangered Fossa, the largest member of the mongoose family.
 
A $72 million green renovation from 2008-2010 added 4 additional acres to the existing 12 acres and added several new animal exhibits, veterinary buildings, an education center, gift shop, a new parking lot, an impressive treetop pedestrian bridge (perfect for events with food trucks and strolling entertainment) and The Picnic Basket Restaurant. From continental breakfast to mouth-watering BBQs and elegant buffets, The Picnic Basket will gladly customize an appetizing catering menu to suit your event needs.
 
Happy Hollow now combines innovative green architecture with fanciful fun and is the first park to ever become Gold LEED Certified. Some of HHPZ’s green components include, 7 growing roofs with native plant species which provide habitat for indigenous wildlife, an education center constructed of hay bales, a water recycle system which repurposes water from fountains and faucets for non-potable functions throughout the facility, a sustainable storm water management system designed to keep all rainfall on site, and the use of Forest Stewardship Council certified wood framing and recycled plastic lumber during all phases of the renovation and expansion.
