Aztlan Park, Lubbock, Texas.

Territorial limits of our working site area can be found on this Google map and more precisely delimited in this SketchUp model.

Aztlan Park, located in Northeast Lubbock contains rich overlapping histories ranging from the natural shape of the ground to the legacy of human occupation. The memory of human drama extends back 10,000 years to activity emanating from the nearby Lubbock Lake Landmark, through the time of the Comanche, forward through the 1970 tornado that razed Hispanic camps in the area (and much of downtown), across railroad servicing the regional cotton industry and that famed Amarillo Highway. It is a seam cutting into the cap rock of the Llano Estacado leading out to Ransom Canyon and down the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River to the Gulf of Mexico. There is much to uncover and unpack in this place - True Stories. Dig in.
