Downtown Victoria’s most iconic gathering place is getting a facelift in time for the bicentennial celebration next year.

The City of Victoria’s downtown master plan notes the impact that DeLeon Plaza has made on the countless residents who’ve visited to attend a festival, watch a performance or rest beneath the shade of the plaza’s stately oak trees.

The master plan recommends expanding DeLeon Plaza and implementing a permanent performance space to increase the potential of this area and expand the types of programming that will be offered year-round.

Yes, the new renderings include restrooms for downtown Victoria at De Leon Plaza!

The Civic Alert which you read here also offers the new improvements include more access to more trashcans and my personal favorite for all of our Victoria history buffs out there, " Improvements to the area in front of the Six Flags monument, where the new statue of Victoria’s founding couple, Martín de León and Patricia de la Garza, will be located."
