Mazatlan Central Park begins to take shape



Three months after the work began with the dredging, the Laguna del Camarón goes wider but with few birds

The works of the Central Park of Mazatlán are developed in an extension of 32.54 hectares, it takes three months and they begin to see advances.

The Laguna del Camarón instead of ending it, as it was questioned, can already be appreciated more broadly; although the birds that inhabit this area and the migratory ones are still few compared to those that were before.

This park, according to the municipal president, Joel Bouciéguez, and the governor of the state, Quirino Ordaz, will be one of the most important attractions in Latin America.

In a tour of the property that hosted the City Forest for years and is located in the south-west of the city, next to the boardwalk and the new road, dozens of workers were found developing part of administrative offices, cafeteria and workshops where there will be courses of diverse free subjects for people of all ages.


The park will have a space for entertainment and recreation, will have educational, cultural and sports area with soccer, volleyball and basketball courts, skatepark, building for workshops, trade, restaurants, restrooms, and administration office. Without missing a rest area, picnic and for outdoor concerts.

Here you will also have the house of the Mazatlan Museum and the Aquarium. With this project, the President of the Association of Hotels and Motels of Mazatlan, José Ramón Manguart, says that Mazatlán will position itself as a high-level tourist destination.

The tourist wants to have more entertainment sites; with the Aquarium you have three out of every four tourists.

The Central Park will be an attraction that will attract national and foreign visitors to this destination of beaches.


Neighbors of the Forest say that they had their doubts with the Laguna del Camarón, they thought that they would disappear, but now they see it better, Rodrigo Lizárraga stressed; although they say they have had a lot of discomforts. Weeks suffered the earth, quagmire left by the dump trucks, the dirt that they took from the body of water.

Stinking unbearable odors have given way, they hope that after this discomfort they have suffered everything is worth it. In addition, they hope that it really is a space open to citizenship as promised by the governor of the state, Quirino Ordaz. Mazatlan requires a lung to replace the City Forest.
