The staff was great and learned a lot. Free to enter and view the park. Fun fact: our southern boarder was not so " set in stone " as you would have thought. Well it was fixed in the 1960's thanks to JKF. Hence the reason he is on the mural

Beautiful place with Mexican-American history. The theater is little but cozy and it has excellent light and sound.

Had no idea about the ongoing border dispute here, or how it was resolved. Interesting history lesson. The pale also features live performances.

We decided to make a stop at Chamizal partially because my 4 year old son has a National Parks Passport we like to collect stamps for. We stopped by early on a Saturday morning. You'd never know it was there, hidden behind a residential area off the highway you'd usually have no need to go that far on, unless heading... More

I had read the previous reviews and people had told me not to go but its a NP and there must be a reason for that. So I went and saw and it took all of 10mins. It's down the road from the zoo but don't make a special trip.

Horses are available to rent for a good price. Lots of space to ride them. Took a grill, cooked a discada, rode the horses and ponies. Lots of security makes you feel comfortable.

Really interesting little National Memorial. It tells the story of how a border dispute was caused then solved peacefully, which is somewhat unusual. It's also got a nice exhibit on the survey of the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo and how the Mexican and American team were able to overcome the recent war and cultural differences to complete the survey. It's also... More

Stopped by the visitor's center real quick. The museum just explains how the US and Mexico came to terms with a new International border. The park outside was surrounded by busy streets. The grass needed to be cut. Not one of the better NPS sites.

So much to learn at the Memorial!! I was amazed by the history of El Paso, and how much of El Paso was actually part of Mexico, & how much I didn't learn in school!! During the summer months, there are free outdoor concerts every weekend - with an outdoor dance floor .... people of all ages gather with friends... More

We came to the memorial to burn some time before catching a flight out if town. The memorial is dedicated to the peaceful end to a land dispute between Mexico and the United States. It's a great idea for the land, but overall it isn't anything overly special. The memorial has special events that sound to be excellent, but outside... More
