The Cesar Chavez Commemorative is located on a hill in the northwest quadrant of Cesar Chavez Park, adjacent to the lake and the parking area. Dalinda Jimenez designed a plaza that creates the effect of agricultural fields where Chavez spent most of his life working the land and advancing the rights of field laborers. Raised planters, desert plants, surface treatments and a dry river wash are incorporated into the field motif creating areas for reflection and gathering. Martin Moreno designed four bronze plaques, 4' by 3' each, that symbolically represent events in Chavez' life as a leader of the United Farm Workers. The plaques are placed on each of the four sides of the plaza and are accompanied by written narratives. An 8' tall statue of Chavez has been created by Zarco Guerrero for the center of the plaza, which faces the fields and mountains of the park.
