Locke Memorial Park

 

                                

History of the Locke Memorial Park

On June 9, 2006 the Locke Foundation hosted the Locke Memorial Park Ground Breaking Ceremony, which was followed by the Locke Memorial Park Dedication Ceremony on October 8, 2006. The Locke memorial Park was constructed on a vacant lot which once housed a building that burned down on Main Street in 1984. The Park serves as a memorial to the Chinese pioneers of the area, and dedicated to the Chinese who built the railroad, levees, and agriculture of California and the town of Locke.
