The head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, supervised the progress of the works of the second stage of the Cantera Park located in the Coyoacán mayor’s office.
During the event in which she was accompanied by the Secretary of Works and Services, Jesús Esteva and the mayor of Coyoacán, Rigoberto Ávila, it was reported that the works in the place have an 82% progress and are expected to conclude in August.
This was a demand of many years ago from all the residents of the area: that this land that the Asphalt Plant occupies not only be used for the Asphalt Plant, but that it really become a public space for all the neighborhoods of this area, Santa Úrsula, Santo Domingo and different neighborhoods that are around this very important area of this beautiful Mayor’s Office of Coyoacán.
The Cantera Park is part of the “Sembrando Parques” program and a PILLARS will also be installed in it where various cultural, sports and educational activities will be offered free of charge.
