History

  • Cameron Park sits along with Mayfield, Weisshaar, and Werry, as one of the four old Mayfield parks. Dating back to 1888, the mini parks, positioned symmetrically, were originally called Berkeley, Hollywood, Hampton, and Eton. In 1968, Berkeley was renamed for Donaldina M. Cameron, who, as a young woman, became director of the Presbyterian Mission Home for Chinese Women in San Francisco.  Upon retiring, Cameron lived at 1020 California Avenue in College Terrace until she died at age 98 in 1968.
