Description

Veinte de Agosto Park is named for the birthday of Tucson, August 20, 1775. This small, 1.02-acre park contains a lot of history. On the site is the original foundation of the San Augustin Church. The park contains a circle of flagpoles used during the commemoration of Tucson's birthplace and the six flags that have flown over Tucson over the years. It is also the home of the controversial Pancho Villa statue, a gift from Mexico to the United States. To many, Pancho Villa was a criminal, but to others, he was a freedom fighter, and so this statue and a bit of Tucson history are located in this park. The park also contains mature trees, a small fountain, and seating
