Thurgood Marshall Regional Park – Home of the Port Chicago 50 is located in Concord, California on Chupcan territory, at the inland portion of the former Port Chicago Naval Magazine.
On June 1, 2021, the East Bay Regional Park District's Board of Directors unanimously approved the naming of Thurgood Marshall Regional Park – Home of the Port Chicago 50. The naming was the result of a petition and 9 months of advocacy from local organizations including Friends of Port Chicago National Memorial, Citizens for Historical Equity, East Bay Black Employee Collective, NAACP East County, and United Veterans Council among many others.
The park is now seeking funding for an interpretive visitor center that will teach of the sacrifices and bravery of the Port Chicago sailors.
Although the park is not yet officially open to the public, scheduled events and tours are now regularly taking place at the park. See the Park District's calendar for dates and times.
