Esquer Park has been named for the entire Esquer family, who has a long and storied history in the Tempe community. In 1940, Eduardo and Rita Esquer moved to Tempe to work the farms in south Tempe in what now is the Lakes Community. The Esquer’s and their 10 children moved into the Victory Acres neighborhood in 1946 after the subdividing of area following World War II. The family continued their farm labor work and the children set course for helping make Tempe a better community with the values instilled into them by their parents. 

Today, nearly 300 individuals are proud to call themselves descendents of Eduardo and Rita Esquer many of whom still live in Tempe and the Victory Acres neighborhood. Through their actions, dedication to service to others and outstanding public involvement they have shaped a better Tempe. 

Park size is 3 acres.
