Celebrating Chicano Park's 40th Anniversary

April 22, 2010 1:01 p.m.

On April 22, 1970 the people of Logan Heights and other Chicano communities in San Diego protested against the construction of a Highway Patrol station under the Coronado bridge and won the right to build a park. Today, 40 years later, Chicano Park is a vibrant symbol of the Chicano movement. We talk with Victor Ochoa, a muralist and founding member of the Chicano Park Steering Committee about the history of the park and Chicano activism.
