More photos of Chicano Park in Barrio Logan.

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I took a whole lot of photos during my walk through Chicano Park.  Here are some images from the east side of the public park, right next to Interstate 5.  A few picnic benches and unusual features can be found in this area.

Some of these photographs might cause a strong reaction.  As I’ve mentioned before, this blog aims to be nonpolitical.  I just aim my old camera at interesting things around San Diego…and you decide what to make of it all!

This polished memorial stands apart from the murals, by a small patch of green grass.
