One of the most scenic, historic and popular parks in San Marcos, Juan Veramendi Plaza is known for its iconic gazebo, the Charles S. Cock House Museum, the Merriman Cabin, the Dr. Gwen K. Smith Fountain, the memorial grove and the beautiful pathway to the Riverwalk.
Those who have enjoyed the park through the years can now claim and personalize their own small piece of the Fountain Plaza area by purchasing an engraved brick. Proceeds will be used to fund improvements to Veramendi Plaza Park, including repairs to the newly restored gazebo.
