Gilroy Selected as Potential Location for New Great Wolf Lodge Family Resort


The City of Gilroy, California announced that it has been selected by . as a potential location for a new Great Wolf Lodge family resort. Representatives from Great Wolf Resorts have been considering several locations in Northern California but recently agreed to enter a 60-day exclusivity period with the City of Gilroy to fully assess the potential of building a resort in Gilroy. During this period, the City and Great Wolf will discuss a potential public-private partnership. At the same time, Great Wolf will engage in community outreach about the project.

Great Wolf Resorts Inc. is the parent company of Great Wolf Lodge, North America’s largest family of indoor water park resorts. The proposed resort would be located off Highway 152/Hecker Pass, on a parcel of land adjacent to Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park. While project details are still under discussion, the resort would likely follow a similar blueprint as other Great Wolf Lodge resorts, including up to 700 family-friendly suites, a large indoor water park, conference facilities, shops, restaurants, and a variety of other attractions.

Representatives from the City of Gilroy and Great Wolf Resorts will be conducting community outreach programs in the coming weeks to gather feedback from a wide range of residents, community stakeholders, and local organizations.
Needless to say, it would be great for Gilroy, stay tuned.

Café Thyme

Café Thyme
433 First St.
Gilroy, CA 95020
(408) 413-1250

One of the best restaurants in Gilroy is Café Thyme. It rivals any upscale restaurant currently in Morgan Hill which says a lot. The quality of the food is distinctive, very fresh, and surprisingly upscale for Gilroy. The only drawback is the location. I read a review of the restaurant in the Gilroy Dispatch and set out to find it which wasn’t easy. It’s located in a very nondescript strip mall on First Street. The cuisine is definitely California farm to table fresh cuisine.
I’ve been there several times over the last six months primarily for lunch and once for dinner and have not been disappointed. The menu changes depending on the season. Recently we ordered the Kale Chicken Caesar and the Cajun Prawn Sliders with Roasted Potatoes. Both dishes were amazing. They don’t have a liquor license yet but in the process of receiving one. All of the Yelp reviews that I’ve read have been positive.
So, we’re giving a shout out to Café Thyme because Gilroy seems to have a history of not supporting its restaurants. So come on people spread the word about Café Thyme.
