While the QOL Bond projects are scattered throughout the city, the majority are located in the heart of downtown within walking distance of the 133,000 square-foot El Paso Convention Center. Key developments include a new children’s museum; multi-purpose performing arts venue; Hispanic cultural center; new and improved parks; public art projects; public transportation in the form of refurbished street cars, dating back to the 1940s; and the first and only TouchCity Digital History Wall in the United States. Privately-funded projects include Southwest University Park, home to the El Paso Chihuahuas, Triple-A Baseball Team. In its inaugural year (2014), the ballpark was named “Ballpark of the Year” by and Baseball Digest.

El Paso Mission Trail

Historical Landmark
23 mi. away
Located in El Paso’s Lower Valley this Trail is rich in history dating back 400 years. Sure to take your breath away these three adobe churches remain as living testaments to the faith of our Spanish and Indian ancestors. Established in 1862 the Ysleta Mission is the cornerstone of the Ysleta del Sur Indian Pueblo. Two miles east lies the Socorro Mission. The architecture of this mission reflects the culture, politics and insurmountable spirit of the early settlers of this vibrant town. Established in 1789 the San Elizario Chapel is an amazing paragon of late adobe church architecture in West Texas and New Mexico. It is an exquisite reflection of European architectural styles on the earlier, simpler box-like missions of the region. El Paso Mission Trail Association is dedicated to the education, promotion and preservation of the missions at Ysleta, Socorro, and San Elizario Chapel. An exhibit, “Paths of the Padres-Discover El Paso’s Historic Missions” is on permanent display at the El Paso International Airport.

El Paso Zoo

4 mi. away
It’s not the typical El Paso experience, but, then again, visiting the El Paso Zoo is anything but typical. The park looks as though it was carved right out of the city, an expansive green space that is home to exotic animal species from around the world. From your first visit you’ll know that this zoo was not created to house curiosities. It was carefully planned as an open landscape to be explored and discovered. It’s a place that encourages outbursts of oohs!, ahhs!, not to mention the occasional mad dash to the next exhibit. Imagine that… a place where your kids can run amuck and the only repercussion is your struggle to keep up with them. One of the most interesting things about the El Paso Zoo is that it was developed with a “total immersion” mindset. Visiting this zoo is like taking a journey; an experience that could bring out the animal in anyone. So, if you’re expecting a typical walk in the park, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the uncommon encounters that await you. Get ready to transform your usual family outing into a real adventure.
