Statue of Benito Juarez at Pantoja Park, who served five terms as the President of Mexico in the 1800s. The statue was a gift from Mexico in 1981. Pantoja Park was created in 1850 by William Heath Davis and named after Don Juan Pantoja y Arriaga. It is the oldest park in downtown San Diego, located in the Marina District bounded by Columbia, India, F, and G Streets. Pantoja was the second sailing master of the Spanish fleet. In 1782 he made the first good map of San Diego Bay, which was published in 1802 in Madrid, Spain.
