Chamizal: A Little Park With A Big Story

Come for a visit and make us part of your story!

For thousands of years the Rio Grande meandered through what is now El Paso and Ciudad Juarez without a care. Do you know why it suddenly became a thorn in the relations between the United States of America and Mexico? How did a plot of land less than 500 acres cause a rift between neighboring nations for a century? What did over 5,000 El Paso residents give up to help solve the problem? Does any of this even sound familiar? The story of the Chamizal Convention – one you may never have heard – is an example around the world of successful diplomacy. Visit us and find out what it means to you.
