Nice little park in a bad warehouse area of town trying to come up in the world. Lucky for us there was a Farmers Market that day and it saved the morning to a dull day in Lubbock

This area is easy to get to, and it gives a nice tribute to Buddy Holly. It is right on Crickets avenue, so it is close to the action of that area.

Located in the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center, this is another must-visit for Buddy Holly and music fans.

The area where the statue is located is very nicely isolated and has a large open grass area in a rather urban setting. The bronze statue is well done and looks strikingly like Buddy during one of his performances.

this is a good stop to get out of the sun, the movie needs to be updates a little, it is from 1999, but the museum is very informative on the life of Buddy Holly

A large broze statue of Lubbock's own Buddy Holly is the main draw here. The walk is line with plaques of donors and musicians, all bringing back many memories. After you tour the musuem, comesit by the statue and think back. A nice little park area that has benches and shade trees, a good place for reflection. Drive down Crickets... More
