Washington Park, aka North Town, is a one square mile radius community, located just north of downtown Mesa, Arizona; it is the once-segregated neighborhood of Mesa. Today it is recognized by the city as the Washington-Escobedo Heritage Neighborhood. The matriarchs of the neighborhood have demonstrated great resiliency in the community.
