It’s that time of the year when we enjoy the sea and sun! Easter time! Many tourists come to our lovely Isla Bonita to enjoy our beautiful beaches, swim in our pristine beautiful Caribbean waters, party and have a good time. Many families head out to the beach and parks to enjoy some nice family quality time. Having in mind the children of San Pedro and the many tourists who are coming to visit, the Town Council gave Central Park a face lift just in time for Easter.
Ambergris Today met with Deputy Mayor, Mr. Severo Guerrero, who is in charge of civic and infrastructure development on the island and he explained a bit more on the playgrounds that are being placed on several parks and new park projects that are currently underway.
Under his portfolio, Mr. Guerrero is in charge of establishing new recreational areas and parks and overseeing them. Just this week Central Park had the benches painted bright purple and a new playground was erected for the children to enjoy. Central Park looks bright and beautiful and the new playground will bring much joy to all the children who visit the park.
The Heredia Flamboyant Park in the San Pablo Area also received a new playground and in about two or three weeks the Boca Del Rio Park and San Pedrito Park will be receiving new playground sets as well. Currently there is a large palapa that is being constructed at the San Pedrito Park and more beautification is yet to come.
“We have recently designated an area for a new park in the San Marcos Area,” commented Deputy Mayor Severo Guerrero. “Minister Heredia has allocated $10,000 for the parks of San Pedro, and I believe that this park in San Marcos is really needed for the children to enjoy. Work at the new park will begin in the months to come.”
Anyone interested in adopting a park, for the upkeep and maintenance, can contact Mr. Severo Guerrero at the office of the San Pedro Town Council at 226-2198 or 633-2428 or email at [email protected].
