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

The park honors the peaceful agreement of a more than 100-year border issue between Mexico and USA that resulted from the natural change of course of the Rio Grande River between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso. A Park Ranger gave us very enlightening knowledge about the memorial. He was very instructive and helpful.

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.
