San Diego's Chicano Park
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
If you've never visited San Diego's Chicano Park, you might imagine that it is just another typical park: grass and trees, playgrounds and picnic tables, weekend gatherings of families and friends. However, unlike other parks, Chicano Park is steeped in a profound sociopolitical history of Chicano life in our city.

Mural1

Chicano Park in San Diego is a lasting memorialization of the San Diego Chicano community's struggle against marginalization; a fight to retain a sense of community and a beloved neighborhood. The murals in Chicano Park visually narrate these struggles and the local, national, and international heroes who fought for justice, recognition, and equality for Chicanos in San Diego and beyond.

Mural2

Since the late 19th century, the area southeast of downtown San Diego, known as Logan Heights and Barrio Logan, has been home to many of San Diego's Spanish speaking people. A huge influx of Mexican immigrants settled in the area following the Mexican Revolution in 1910. The area was extensive; the original neighborhood reached all the way to the ocean, with waterfront access for residents.
