Cambrian Park is a former census-designated place (CDP) and neighborhood of San Jose, a city in Santa Clara County, California, United States. Formerly a separate town, it is now part of the incorporated city of San Jose.

The population was 3,258 at the 2000 census.



Cambrian Park is located at 37°15′20″N 121°55′44″W / 37.25556°N 121.92889°W / 37.25556; -121.92889Coordinates: 37°15′20″N 121°55′44″W / 37.25556°N 121.92889°W / 37.25556; -121.92889 (37.255593, −121.928915)[1].

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.


As of the census[2] of 2000, there were 3,258 people, 1,127 households, and 854 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 5,322.0 people per square mile (2,062.2/km²). There were 1,143 housing units at an average density of 1,867.1/sq mi (723.5/km²). The racial makeup of the CDP was 84.87% White, 0.40% African American, 1.04% Native American, 4.11% Asian, 0.21% Pacific Islander, 4.33% from other races, and 5.03% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 11.63% of the population.
