Anisq'Oyo' is the Chumash Indian name for the Isla Vista mesa on which UCSB and the community of Isla Vista are located.
In the spirit of healing, this community-initiated park was built in the heart of Isla Vista after an especially tumultuous year (1970), which included the burning of the Bank of America building. More interesting historical and other information about the park can be found on this Wiki site.
