Hey everyone, Cesar Chavez Plaza is famous!
While within these nifty fifty states there might be roughly one gajillion parks/plazas/sushi bars utilizing the same moniker, only one made the American Planning Association’s “10 Great Public Spaces” this year. Hint: it’s ours.
According to CNN, the APA has been looking to highlight the park but was waiting on recent renovations which were completed in May. Although only phase one of a three part renovation, the landscaping upgrade and extended walkways mean that the park was primed for its closeup.

We brought only a blanket, a sack of almonds, and tons of laughter and silliness. But you know, it’s all about the ambience and that was one of the most idyllic days I’ve had the pleasure to bask in. I’m admittedly bias, yet don’t quite care - so I say congrats on some well-deserved recognition!
Thoughts? Memories good or bad? “Hell no!” or “Aw yeah!”? Did Cesar Chavez Plaza earn it’s spot on the list? Why or why not?
