Named after Luther Burbank - a renowned Horticulturist who shocked the Bay Area and the nation in 1926 . . . by announcing he was an infidel.

These are the un-written boundaries. Meridian on the east; Bascom on the west; San Carlos on the north; and Parkmoor (Hwy 280) on the south. It is a 2.6 mile circuit.

Burbank is unincorporated (Santa Clara County), which "frees it up" from many of the encumbrances of San Jose city government. That is possibly why there are so many tattoo parlors, adult entertainment palaces, and baby furniture outlet centers.
