I was not impressed. Parking was difficult, it was dirty looking, no real sense of pride in the statue area...just not impressed

Inside of small pavilion at the corner of Shoreline Blvd and Peoples St, the Selena statue is a respectful tribute to Selena. The base is inscribed with a brief biography of the artists and what she meant to Corpus Christi, and the Tejano music scene. It is worth stopping by if you are in downtown Corpus Christi and a respectful... More

This is just a reminder of part of our corpus christi history. Selena is a historical figure from our entertainment industry. Not an interactive attraction but an essential reminder of culture. A nice statue.

Unless you are a big fan (and she did have a pleasing voice) of this unfortunate woman, this is not much of an attraction. It is alone statue in bronze Inna small gazebo type structure standing on the sidewalk by the sea wall. Truly not inspirational enough or scenic enough to make the drive and mess with the parallel parking... More

The pictures of her statue do not do it justice. The painted tiles down below are so beautiful. You don't have to be a Selena fan to appreciate this beautiful tribute to her. If you are a fan, it is even more special.

It's just a statue, although in a great spot on the waterfront boardwalk. If you are a Selena fan, it might be worth a look, but otherwise, don't make a special trip.

The Selena Memorial overlooks the bay at Corpus Christi. At night, it is lit up with white lights and I much prefer it at night. The statue of Selena and the rose is beautiful. People spend some time here, it's just that kind of place. Really makes you think of her. Play a Selena track on your cellphone and you... More

Selena's death was a tragedy. She was so young. The statue is okay but the highlight of this area is the view of the bay. Nice place to relax and look at the water.

The Mirador is right in the bayfront. Parking can be a little tricky during weekends. Simple but great for pictures and please take a moment to read Selena's message to the world and her fans. Que viva Selena!
