The Belwood of Los Gatos community is hosting its annual Independence Day or 4th of July celebration and the details will soon be announced on the Belwood HOA website. Last year, neighborhood festivities ran from 1pm – 5pm at the cabaña. Read all about it on the Belwood HOA site!
Annual 4th of July Party
The party is open to Belwood members and their invited guests only. This will be the second July 4th community party out of lockdown (they were annual until 2019, but were put on hold from 2020-2021), and it’s a great opportunity for newer residents, especially, to get to know their neighbors.
Please note that our warm, dry, and windy summers make the risk of fire danger very high. Fireworks are illegal in most of Santa Clara County without a permit due to the safety hazard. A sign at Belgatos Park warns that fireworks are strictly prohibited. There are some spectacular professional firework displays and festivities around the Valley that you can enjoy, including the, which is less than 10 minutes by car and 20 minutes by bike from Belwood!
Got Facebook? If so, you might consider tagging photos shared of the event with the unofficial Belwood Cabaña page on Facebook. It’s another great way to keep in-touch and stay updated with the community.
Over the last month we’ve gone from hailstorm to 80F and sunny, and just in time for our first 90-degree day the Belwood Cabaña pool is opening for the summer season!

Did you know that the Belwood of Los Gatos cabaña can be rented by members for a variety of purposes?
Today (Saturday, August 25) the Leigh High School cheerleaders held a carwash fundraiser in the cabaña parking lot from 9am – 1pm. My family and I have rented it in the past for parties; most notably we did an 8th grade reunion party there for our son’s class from St. Mary’s Elementary School a year after the kids all graduated. A lot of people rent it for birthday parties and use the large lawn area for the “bounce houses” which are so popular with kids today.
Belwood cabaña collage - auto club met not too long ago - a fun sight!
Having a neighborhood cabaña is a nice plus. It can be a gathering point for folks to meet their neighbors in and around the pool.
In the Surmont, Belgatos, and Belwood neighborhoods, the cabaña is where we vote, it’s where we enjoy the summer bingo & movie on the lawn and where the holiday boutiques are held.
If you’re a member or resident and want to rent out the facility, your go-to person is Gina Wagner, who can be reached at 358-2229. The possibilities are endless!
Sunday October 26th from 3:30 – 6pm (free admission but donations appreciated) – games, prizes, candy, costumes and “the magic mirror”. Spooky haunted house tours begin at 5pm.
Pizza and Drinks served at 4pm (Pizza $2, Drinks $1).
Volunteers are needed to help with this incredibly fun event. Please contact Charleen Renati at 358-7905 or email@example.com.
