San Pablo was an unincorporated community located in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. The San Pablo neighborhood was one of several Mexican colonias in the Salt River Valley around Phoenix, Arizona. In the 1950s, Arizona State University used its power of eminent domain to redevelop San Pablo into dormitories, sports facilities and commercial infrastructure.
San Pablo was adjacent to Tempe, Arizona, bordered by University Drive to the south (known then as Eighth Street), Fifth Street to the north, College Avenue to the west and the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks to the west. A canal and railroad tracks also divided two Hispanic neighborhoods at the base of the Tempe buttes, with the more eastern section sometimes called the "Mickey Mouse Barrio."
