Long Description:
"Portuguese Centennial Park is typical of parks found in Portugal. It was a joint effort of the City of Hayward and its sister city, Faro, Portugal. Two artists, Americo Marcelino and Jose Martins, were sent from Faro to construct the park. The City of Faro donated the tiles, stones, light standards and benches."http://www.villageprofile.com/california/hayward/07things/topic.html
