Arbor Park, located in eastern San Jose, was built in 2001 by Community Home Builders, a non-profit affordable housing developer. In 2003, MidPen Housing Corporation purchased the general partner interest in Arbor Park from Community Home Builders in order to preserve its affordable status into the future. Arbor Park community amenities include a childcare center, two tot lot play areas and a landscaped courtyard with a community patio and gas barbeques. It is located close to shopping, jobs and transit in a fast-growing area of the city. It is also near the Mexican Heritage Plaza cultural center and Alum Rock Park, an open space nature preserve with hiking trails.
