05/19/22 City of SJ: Heinlenville Groundbreaking Ceremony

May 19, 2022 3:26 PM | Elyse Wong (Administrator)


Here is the video of the groundbreaking for Heinlenville Park on May 19, a historic day!  The park is located on the site where John Heinlen helped the Chinese Americans rebuild San Jose's Chinatown after the Market Street Chinatown was suspiciously burned down in 1887.

CHCP Advisory Board Member/Historian Connie Young Yu spoke on the significance of the name of the park and that CHCP led the voting for the Heinlenville Park name, honoring both John Heinlen, the humanitarian, and the community of Heinlenville, the last Chinatown in San Jose.
