Coyote Creek Flooding Damages Japanese Friendship Garden & Tea House in Kelley Park
This photo shows the flooding of the Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelley Park. The Garden was overrun by water and the beautiful (and recently-renovated) Tea House sustained water damage.
Thank You, Donors!
We have raised over $11,000 in a few weeks. Every dollar makes a difference and we still have a way to go, but Thanks to everyone who has donated so far.
Thank you, Volunteers!
Hundreds of volunteers showed up to help clean the park and begin the restoration process.
San Jose Parks Foundation is working with City Staff and local groups like Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful and South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition to clean up. Here is a link to Volunteer.
Donate to restore This Community Treasure
The Japanese Friendship Garden was a gift from San Jose's Sister City – Okayama, Japan.
This community treasure has been a place of peace and beauty for decades and the beautiful Tea House has housed many wonderful gatherings, including San Jose Parks Foundation's Annual Summer Soiree Fundraising event.
We have started a Japanese Friendship Garden Fund, which you may access through our website.
