How Christmas Circle in Borrego Springs Got Its Name

There’s this small traffic circle that’s the center of the town, named after the birth of Salvador Ignacio Linares in Coyote Canyon on Christmas Eve in 1775. The circle functions as the town’s focal point and hosts numerous outdoor community events throughout the year.

This quirky and cool downtown, roughly one hour away from the Coachella Valley, in California, boasts a gazebo, picnic tables, a dance floor, and public restrooms. The park is administered by the Christmas Circle Community Park Foundation.
