Our trip to Chicano Park was memorable for me because it was my first trip there. I knew of the rich history present at the park, but I did not know the extent of how easy it would be to immerse myself into the history. The park felt alive with each mural telling their own story. The details in each mural were truly astonishing. The park is a living and breathing quintessential portion of the community. It is a symbol of success from the past and hope for the future. Chicano Park provides the opportunity for anyone to enter the pages of a history book which resonated most with me. I am incredibly thankful to have gone to Chicano Park and I hope to be able to go back sometime soon and explore some more!
