El Paso's Plaza of the Alligators

Luis Jiménez’s sculpture, titled Plaza de los Lagartos, which means “Plaza of the Alligators.”
The large fiberglass statue and fountain is located near the area where live alligators once roamed in the plaza’s pond. The statue brings back fond memories for many who visit the Plaza. Some older El Pasoans relate stories of childhood visits to the real gator pond in the 1950s and 1960s.
