Take a Stroll Back in Time

The Gilroy Historic Paseo is a pathway that conveniently connects the shops and restaurants on Monterey Street with adjacent free parking lots. As you stroll through the Paseo, take a moment to look at the historic murals and interpretative panels to learn more about the city’s storied past, from the Early Settlers and roots of Agriculture through The Cowboy Era, the growth of Commerce and Hospitality, and of course, Gilroy’s long love affair with Garlic. (Located on Monterey Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets in downtown Gilroy)

Learn more about Gilroy’s past on the Gilroy City Historian web page.
