Come to Christmas in the Park and visit our District 10 Tree! 

Our District 10 team has put together a Christmas tree honoring those whom make our community great! Our tree features ornaments honoring all of our fabulous neighborhood associations, as well as outstanding community leaders, and excellent non-profit organizations. Finally, as the tree topper, it features the landmark Mt. Umunhum Radar Tower!

Come on down and see if you can find your neighborhood association!
This Holiday Season consider adopting a lifelong friend from our San Jose Animal Care Center!
