Barrio Logan

mural in barrio loganWe are very excited to be the newest members of the East Village and Barrio Logan neighborhood. We have received such a warm welcome from all of the community leaders and couldn’t be happier to be part of a city with a rich culture and strong community partnerships.

Located only a few blocks south of Petco Park and downtown San Diego, Barrio Logan is one of San Diego’s oldest and most culturally rich communities. This small neighborhood came about in 1871 when Congressman John A. Logan wrote legislation to provide federal land grants for a transcontinental railroad ending in San Diego.  The project was never completed, but a small street in the area was named after Congressman Logan. The southern area of Logan Heights later came to be known as Barrio Logan when an influx of refugees moved into the area after the Mexican Revolution.

Today Barrio Logan is home to Chicano Park, the 32nd Street Naval Station, General Dynamics NASSCO, Logan Heights Library, The Barrio Logan College Institute, the Center for Amusing Arts and over 24 neighborhood restaurants.  Under the direction of council member David Alvarez, Barrio Logan is quickly on its way to becoming one of San Diego’s most sought after commercial areas.
