A new public park has opened in downtown La Paz. Parque Piedras y Pajaros or the Stones and Birds Park was inaugurated on April 13th, 2012. The park was constructed for the benefit and enjoyment of the community of La Paz.
Officiating at the opening along with La Paz Mayor Esthela Ponce Beltran were Cristina Walton from the Walton Family Foundation and Lucia Frausto from the International Community Foundation. Parque Piedras y Pajaros is a private park provided for public use by Tenaja Holdings. The Mayor expressed her gratitude to Ms. Walton and Tenaja Holdings for their initiative and said that downtown La Paz needs support to grow and become a place people can be proud of.
Parque Piedras y Pajaros was named from a poem of the same theme. The poem is proudly displayed in both English and Spanish on the east sidewall for all to enjoy.
The new park is centrally located on Constitution Street between Madero and Belisario Dominguez and in the mayor’s words, “ Is a place for the citizens of this city to relax in tranquility.” The park is free to the public and will be open everyday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
