History Park will be CLOSED again today, February 22, 2017. Luckily there was no damage to History Park, but near by residents and businesses were not as lucky. Our hearts go out to our neighbors who have been devastated by flooding. For those wishing to help, the American Red Cross Silicon Valley Chapter has set up a volunteer station to register to volunteer. They will be open from noon to 6pm today, and will be located at 2731 North 1st St. You can also visit their website to help in other ways. #sjd3 #CAStorm #CAFlood ... See MoreSee Less
