Cambrian Park is a census-designated place (CDP) and neighborhood of San Jose, a city in Santa Clara County, California, United States. Cambrian Park was never incorporated as a town (although there were efforts to do so in the early 1960s), and there was never a Post Office for Cambrian Park. Much of the neighborhood is now part of the incorporated city of San Jose, the rest forms the CDP

The population was 3,282 at the 2010 census.

Geography[edit]

Cambrian Park is located at 37°15′20″N 121°55′44″W / 37.25556°N 121.92889°W / 37.25556; -121.92889 (37.255593, −121.928915)[3].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP had a total area of 0.6 square miles (1.6 km2), all of it land.

Not all of the general area today considered "Cambrian Park" lies within San Jose's city limits. A large swath of the neighborhood remains an unincorporated "island" that is administered by Santa Clara County. Recent changes in annexation laws in the State of California that streamlined the process of cities acquiring neighborhoods did not affect this unincorporated area because its population was too large. Thus, if the city of San Jose ever decides to annex the "county island," the annexation must be accepted by the majority of the population of the area to be annexed.

Demographics[edit]

These figures do not include any part of Cambrian Park which has been incorporated into San Jose at the time of the census.
