Saint James Park


Saint James Park is located at St. James & 1st, near East Santa Clara Street & North Market in San Jose, California and is just 10 minutes drive from San Jose International Airport. This 6.8 acre park has various impressive structures and fountains. Parking is free after 6pm in the garages at Third and St. John Streets and Market and St. John Streets, whilst there is also limited street parking available.

Among the facilities and sights in the park is a children's playground, chess tables and benches as well as an impressive three tier water fountain. A bronze statue of the 25th President of the United States, William McKinley can be seen in the park, where he addressed an audience just months before his assassination in 1901. A monument to one of San Jose's most distinguished historical characters, Brigadier General Henry Morris Naglee stands here too.

Visitors are entertained at the park with music concerts staged here periodically, whilst nearby on 1st Street there is a cinema. Notable buildings around the St James Park area include the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, the courthouse and the post office. Less than a mile away is the Children's Discovery Museum on Woz Way.
