Dedicated to the border history

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

I honestly don't know why this is a national park. It is more like a shabby city park than anything else. There is nothing there to do outside of scheduled activities. Close to 2 freeways so you get to enjoy the sound of traffic and smell of exhaust while strolling through the dead grass in the sparse grounds. The only... More

It's a small visitor center with some outdated displays they intend to redo shortly but still a source of very interesting info, and the staff is friendly and ready to share some history with you. This would be a great spot to visit with a history class. There is an event every Sunday evening outside that sounds promising as well.... More
