Took my kiddos (3&10) to explore and the rangers were fantastic. Really knew how to talk to kids and explain or their level. You can get a stamp for your National park passport book and your kiddos can becae jr rangers.

I would say this place is worth a quick stop, but don't expect to stay long. It is a nice park and mural commemorating the cultures of the bortder area and the end of territorial disputes between the US and Mexico.

My husband and I visited the Chamizal National Memorial on a Sunday. The Park was small, but clean and well kept. The outside bathrooms were clean. However we were disappointed that the visitors center was closed.
