We arrived here about 9 AM hoping to get into the visitor's center before the rush, but discovered it doesn't open until 10 AM. However, the ranger told us they were having a special program that day for local students, a presentation of Mexican folklorico dances and we were invited to join the students. We spent about an hour watching... More

The park opens early but be aware that doesn't mean the visitor center with all the info opens early. The visitor center opens at 10 am so I missed probably most of the info. The mural outside is interesting but I think the original version (especially the one on the left) was better and more meaningful (the info regarding the... More

The National Memorial is an easy visit, it is free with plenty of green space for children to run and play. There is a quick walk through history to understand the importance of the National Memorial site. They do host a lot of cultural events here, so I encourage everybody to check to see if there is anything going on... More

The other half on Chamizal is in Juarez. If you brave the border, make sure you know where you are going. 1/2 times I received flack from US border patrol for crossing....well intended, but perhaps a more fitting issue a few years ago.

We stopped here to because we liked the idea of looking across the border to Mexico even though we didn't plan to visit Mexico. The park is very pleasant with picnic tables and trees scattered on a grassy area. The big red x of the border crossing is visible, but not the river. When we were there it was really... More

We had our National Park Travelers Convention here. This is a smaller park but with a lot of history. They are going to be redoing some of the displays soon and can't wait to come back to see it. The Rangers were very friendly and helpful and pointed out several other attractions we should visit to add to out history... More

If you have never heard of the memorial, then you are not alone. We are national park junkies who love collecting the passport stamps. We were close enough to make a trip to this site to see what it was all about. Yes, the disputed boundary between the US and Mexico was most interesting, but in my opinion, the resolution... More

This is a wonderful monument to the peaceful way in which a major border dispute was resolved. It sure would be nice to have a more open border but 9/11 took care of that for the foreseeable future. We attended a meeting at the site and with a presentation by a ranger and an historical discussion of the development of... More
