Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta says the city’s Parque de las Palapas revamp is nearing 35 percent finished. Peralta toured the large inner-city park Monday where work is being done to revamp and expand the popular space.
“This project belongs to everyone. We are already 35 percent complete. It is a transformative project that will give more life to Parque de las Palapas because we are growing the spaces and dignifying the areas for the people of Cancun,” she said.
In a media interview, Ana Paty Peralta highlighted that a roof will be placed over the eating area to shade parkgoers from the hot summer sun.
“We are very happy. This entire project was discussed and agreed upon with the tenants and neighbors so that each detail was with the opinion of each one of them,” she said.
The park, when finished, will offer several playgrounds, a children’s water fountain and more trees. The park is also being expanded by size behind the stage area. New vendor areas are being built, bathrooms are being remodeled and the eating area palapas built new. Street access is also being improved.
The finished project will also include security cameras and additional lighting. The entire park revamp will cost of around 26 million pesos and is scheduled for completion by the end of January.
