Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The municipal government of Puerto Vallarta inaugurated a new children’s playground in Los Mangos Park last Friday, marking the completion of the first phase of the city’s “Rescue of Public Spaces” program. The program aims to revitalize green areas throughout the municipality and promote healthy family recreation.
The new playground, located in the Vista Hermosa neighborhood, is one of 66 new recreational modules that will be installed in parks across Puerto Vallarta. The modules include swings, slides, see-saws, and other equipment designed to provide children with hours of fun and exercise.
“We are committed to working for the well-being of Vallarta families,” Mayor Luis Alberto Michel Rodríguez (aka ‘Profe Michel’) said at the inauguration ceremony. “These new playgrounds are just one way we are making our city a more livable and enjoyable place for everyone.”
The “Rescue of Public Spaces” program also includes tree pruning, cleaning, and repairs to public lighting. The program is funded by taxes paid by Vallarta residents.
“We are grateful to the people of Vallarta for their support,” Profe Michel said. “These new playgrounds are a testament to their investment in their community.”
The inauguration of the Los Mangos Park playground was attended by dozens of residents from surrounding neighborhoods, who will also make use of this pleasant space. The residents expressed their appreciation for the new play area.
“This is a great addition to our neighborhood,” said Maria Hernandez, a mother of two young children. “My kids are already having a blast on the new equipment.”
The municipal government plans to continue installing new playgrounds and revitalizing public spaces throughout Puerto Vallarta in the coming months.
