Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park – also known as Chicano Park -- is the grassy area under the Spaghetti Bowl that you've no doubt passed countless times on your way to and from the west side.

Part of the historic El Segundo Barrio (Spanish for "the Second Neighborhood"), the iconic South Central green-space is known for the colorful murals painted on the freeway columns.

The works of art are so El Paso that when actor Wilmer Valderrama was in town for a promotional stop in July of 2021 he posed in front of one of them and shared the photo on his social media.

The park is also home to the historic Lincoln Center, the future site of the Mexican American Cultural Institute.
