San Diego’s Chicano Park Has Finally Attained National Historic Landmark Status

Chicano Park in San Diego’s Barrio Logan has finally been given National Historic Landmark status, the San Diego Tribune reports. The Department of the Interior, headed by Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, highlighted the park’s significance, saying, “Representative of the Chicano Civil Rights Movement, Chicano Park has become a cultural and recreational gathering place for the Chicano community.” Chicano Park is known for its vibrant murals, which depict culturally significant icons and abstract works of art by Latino artists.

Prior to receiving National Historic Landmark status, Chicano Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The park became a significant landmark in the 1970s, when Latino protesters stood up to the California Highway Patrol officers attempting to use the land though it was designated for community use. In the 1980s, Fox 5 reports, the San Diego Historical Site Board designated the area an “official historical site,” and in 2013, Chicano Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

San Diego council member David Alvarez told KPBS, “Receiving this landmark status will help preserve this location for generations to come and further validate the communities’ struggle for equality and social justice.”
