San Jacinto Plaza Renovation Set to Begin – See What the Stunning ‘New’ Plaza Will Look Like


When it’s all said and done eighteen months from now, the San Jacinto Plaza that we’ve all come to know and love won’t look anything like, well, the San Jacinto Plaza that we know and love.

The historic plaza will undergo a redesign beginning this month that when completed will feature wider sidewalks, water features, more shade trees and shade structures, and an outdoor café among quite a few other things.  Lost in the changes will be the parking spots that currently line both sides, but not two of its classic features; the famous Los Lagartos sculpture and the live pine tree that serves as the city’s Christmas tree. Both will be incorporated into the new design, with the sculpture getting a shade cover to protect it from the elements. To see all the updates and changes, visit the City of El Paso Engineering photo.

Unfortunately, because of construction, the annual Christmas tree lighting and Christmas parade will have to be moved to a different location this year and next. But once the face lift is complete, the lighting ceremony will return to the plaza.

So what do you think of the new look, thumbs up or thumbs down?
