City of Phoenix Eastlake Park Amphitheater


The City of Phoenix historic Eastlake Park Amphitheater building was built around 1945 but had been unused for a number of years. Eastlake Park has historically been the focal point of African American history in Phoenix for much of its existence. Until it outgrew the space, the park was the home of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration. The park has been home to many civil rights rallies, visits from civil right leaders and the starting point of all civil rights marches to the Capital. After an initial Building Assessment by Marlene Imirzian & Associates, the firm provided documentation for the building’s structural stabilization, restoration of finishes and upgrades to plumbing and electrical systems.
