Houge Park is a fantasticly appointed, well maintained twelve and a half acre park in the Cambrian area of San Jose (at Twilight Drive & White Oaks Avenue, SJ 95124). There’s something for everyone, whether it’s benches to sit and enjoy the area, tables for playing chess and checkers, or opportunities to play tennis or chess. With a large, grassy spaces and a walking & jogging trail, folks who want to just get out and walk will have plenty of room for that. When my (now grown) kids were small, my husband would sometimes take them there to meet up with a local astronomy club to view the stars. I’d take them to the playground to let off steam during the day. It was really helpful that there is so much space – and restrooms!
Some of the most appreciated aspects of Houge Park are these:
- 3 Playground areas in all, including one for ages 2-5 & another ages 5-12
- Picnic sites (no reservation)
- Horseshoe pit
- Exercise course
- Basketball court
- ½ basketball court
- Two tennis courts (unlighted)
- Parking lot & plenty of street parking
If you’ve never been to Houge Park, it’s a worthwhile destination and a pleasant surprise in the midst of a residential neighborhood. Cambrian is a popular area in which to live, and even nicer if you’re in close proximity to a beautiful park such as this one.
With the Houge Park sign, shown above, you can see that there are play structures in the distance – with lots of lawn in between.
Below, please note the nicely paved path and par course.
