Originally named La Plaza Abaja, a place for militia receptions and a forum for public speaking, Pershing Square was renamed in honor of World War I General John J. Pershing in 1918. The next major change came in the 1950s, when an 1800-car garage was built beneath the park. In 1989, the Pershing Square Property Association and the Community Redevelopment Agency contributed to assist the Department of Recreation and Parks in the renovation of the park. Architect Ricardo Legoretta and landscapist Laurie Olin designed the current park plan, and the park was rededicated on February 3, 1994.
