Heinlenville Park Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

  • October 10, 2023
  • 3:00 PM
  • 650 N Sixth St, San Jose, CA

We are excited to announce that Heinlenville Park will officially open on October 10 at 3pm with a grand public ceremony.  The park is located on 6th Street between Jackson and Taylor, the site of the historic Heinlenville Chinatown. San Jose's newest park features a children's playground, a garden area, a monumental sculpture and a history wall.

Says historian Connie Young Yu, "The story of the Market Street Chinatown burning and how John Heinlen helped Chinese rebuild their community is written in stone -- and on the wall is the image of CHCP's Chinese American Historical Museum so people will know where to go learn more."

Heinlenville housed the original Ng Shing Gung or Temple of the Five Gods.  The Chinese American Historical Museum is a replica of the building and the 2nd floor holds the original carved and gilded altar from the 1880's.

The program will open with a Japanese Shinto ceremony, followed by several speakers. CHCP's Hoong the Dragon and SJSU's Lion Dance Team will perform in the program finale.  

All are welcome to attend this celebration!
