Arts Park @ Chollas Creek
Arts Park @ Chollas Creek was originally known as Writerz Blok, a graffiti-art lover’s dream. The facilities yard offers over 10,000 square feet of paintable walls. Stop by to try your hand at creating your own murals or stroll the grounds to take in the murals done by locals and pros. The venue sells paint and other supplies. Admission is free.
The operation began in early 2000 as an outreach program geared toward young artists with the goal of encouraging artistic exploration in a safe, gang-neutral environment. Renamed Arts Park @ Chollas Creek in summer 2018, the also offers classes in muralism, screen printing, urban art, and disc-jockey training.
