Starting about 1910,this area was the site of the Eastside Library. By the mid 1960's traffic made it difficult to get to the library, The Branceforte Library was build on Gault Street in 1967. The Eastside library was torn down in 1968. The first efforts was to make the area a large fountain. The fountain was removed and it became a garden area known as the "Eastside Triangle." In 2015 it became El Portal Park.
