Overfelt Gardens/Chinese Cultural Gardens is a 33 acre park that includes picnic areas, restrooms, a fountain, a fragrance garden, three lakes, and a section designated as a California Native Plant & Wildlife Sanctuary. The southeast section of the park includes the Chinese Cultural Garden, commemorating Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang Kai-shek, Confucius, and Chinese culture in general, including a large black stone, mined and shipped from the Republic of China. The land for the park was donated by Mildred Overfelt in 1959, in memory of her parents who were early San Jose pioneers that started a grain and dairy farm in the 1860s. It's a nice and peaceful garden with large ponds surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs, and flowering plants, and accented by cultural points of interest.
