Went to see this after visiting the museum. This is a nice memorial to her, tastefully done, in a scenic area. Right by many fishing boats, etc. I do wish they'd two the lettering on the memorial, as it is getting hard to read. But other than that, well done.

The statue is much smaller than I expected. But the memorial plaques is sweet, and a recording tells of Selena's success and sad early demise. I wish the statue were oriented differently to frame up a better photo -- now the statue looks away.

This well cared for statue of the late Tejano singer, Selena, is located along the beautiful bayfront in Corpus Christi; in the heart of downtown. The access is free, but parking can require some additional walking to get to the memorial.

This touching memorial to a much-beloved, award-winning Téjano pop singer, Selena Quintanilla, murdered at age 23, is on North Shoreline Boulevard. It’s at the entrance to the 600-slip Corpus Christi Marina and a T-Head. Free parking is nearby. The life-sized, 5’8” bronze statue is sheltered under a gazebo. Selena looks seaward, her right leg raised and a microphone held in... More

This memorial captures Selena's essence and legacy. It's a shame that people don't respect the area. Its beauty and view of the marina captures Selena's big dreams and accomplishments, and matches the beauty that was recognized around the world.

The structure holds the memorial to Selena and sits on the seawall. Quite the tribute to someone that was loved internationally.
