delmas park neighborhood association
Delmas Park is a neighborhood in San Jose, California, situated on the western side of Downtown and incorporating Diridon Station, the major transit hub of San Jose. It is walkable and transit-friendly, and it uniquely encompasses mixed commercial and residential areas from the early 20th century, the commercial strip of W. San Carlos St., and the Lakehouse Historic District. The SAP Center arena, Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, and Discovery Meadow are conveniently located nearby. The geographic area that Google proposes to develop, known as Downtown West, is almost entirely within the Delmas Park boundaries.
Our neighborhood boundaries are W. Santa Clara St. on the north, State Highway 87 on the east, Interstate 280 on the south, and the Caltrain tracks and Diridon Station on the west (see the map nearby). Guadalupe River flows along our eastern border, and Los Gatos Creek bisects our neighborhood.
