About Downtown Campbell

Campbell is known affectionately as Orchard City. The Downtown Campbell shopping district along Campbell Avenue is a fun place to hang out. The always popular Downtown Campbell farmers’ market is a year-long event, open every Sunday from 9am-1pm.

Campbell was settled in 1851 by hay farmer Benjamin Campbell, whose original 160 acres today comprise Campbell’s historic downtown. During the century that followed, the business of growing, drying and packing prunes and apricots dominated the city’s life. In 1952, Campbell was incorporated, and Orchard City’s orchards gave way to homes and retail centers. Many of the city’s landmarks, such as Water Tower Plaza and The Pruneyard shopping center tip their hat to Campbell’s proud agricultural heritage. (Source)

Parks and Recreation

Campbell Park

The park is located at the corner of Campbell Avenue and Gilman Avenue, between Downtown Campbell and Highway 17. Campbell Park contains a variety of children’s play equipment, two full-length, night-lit (until 10 p.m.) basketball courts with terraced spectator seating, par course equipment, small open turf areas, restrooms, and is a major access point to the Los Gatos Creek Trail which connects Downtown San Jose to Vasona Park, and on to Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos. There are a very small number of first-come, first-served picnic tables available in the park. Dogs are allowed to travel through the park to access the Los Gatos Creek Trail. (Source)

John D Morgan Park

Campbell boasts a nice inventory of public parks, and most of them have at least some free barbecue and picnic areas. The star of the bunch is 32-acre John D. Morgan Park, named after a former chief of police. Facilities for baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball and horseshoes, as well as two playgrounds and mini water park for children (this last feature operates only during the summer months) make this the perfect place for kids to release their energy.
