The Plaza has been remodeled and is quite a nice place to hang out. There is a snack shack called Rent-a-Chef which provides refreshement, a stage for the events which happen regularly and some shade. There are lots of businesses and restaurants in walking distance.

I was waiting for an event at the Abraham Chavez Auditorium(ZZ Top). I walked over to the San Jacinto Plaza and it was great. Several places available for a refreshing beverage and people watch. Very cool. I'll be back.

For an urban plaza, it was very nice. Nice famous statue in the middle, plenty of seating, nice gardens, vendors selling food.

A beautifully decorated Plaza with Park like setting. A lot of families with young children and teenagers hanging out at night. There is a coffee shop at the park where you could sip coffee. I don’t know of other places in El Paso as lively...More
