Did this short walk on way out of town. Interesting to see all the highly recognizable names on the wall On the way in or out of park be sure to look for the tree dedicated to Sir Paul McCartney. The train station across the street is also worth a look.

This was pretty interesting to see. Lots of names to see and find. Not the greatest site but fun. Doesn't take long at all so be prepared to have other things to do while in the area. It's free though so that's always good.

Was completely surprised by what we found at this location besides a bigger than life statue of Buddy Holly, the memorial wall contained plaques for all member of the West Texas Music Hall of fame. What a great history lesson for a music fan, lots of big names on this display. Still a work in progress, but worth finding.

Primary emphasis here is a statue paying tribute to the infamous Buddy Holly. In addition plaques identify the award recipients of popular musicians who received such and placed into the Walk of Fame. It is peaceful and quiet presenting some photo ops for fans and others located only a partial block away from the museum dedicated to him.

Amazing how much musical talent has originated in West Texas....the depot district and Buddy Holly Museum are all in same place,and are well worth the visit.

With the title of this review out of the way, moving the statue to this location was VERY smart. It's too bad that it took so long to build this monument to Buddy Holly, but it took that long for his widow to shake down the City/County by forcing them to pay her to honor one of Lubbock's favorite sons....

Arrived on Sunday after 6pm so we missed the Buddy Holly center but loved the statue and glasses. We also found his gravesite and childhood home. Highly recommended for those that enjoy the story of Buddy Holly.

We decided to pay homage to the Lubbock Walk of Fame and reflected on Buddy Holly's storied yet short career. He was a musical trail blazer and prolific writer. Nice statue for sure!

Neat little area to learn some of the history of Lubbock and Buddy Holly. There is a little museum, plenty of parking, plenty of food places nearby and if you come on the right Saturday - they have a Farmers Market selling all kinds of things from fruit to local crafts. Best of all, most things are free in the... More
