On Saturday, January 14th the San Pedrito area saw the inauguration of their long awaited park. The San Pedrito Sub Division, created in the early 1990's with limited neighborhood planning, has grown into a thriving community. Complete with fast food restaurants, convenience stores and bars, the brand new park is a welcome addition to the area. Thanks to efforts of residents, the San Pedro Town Council and the Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr, the park is now a reality.
The final project presented to the enthusiastic children and residents of San Pedrito was a beautifully, well lit playground complete with palapa, picnic tables, plants, playground and seating area for parents and guardians.
The San Pedrito Park was originally envisioned in early 2010 by the UDP administration, but the project was apparently abandoned. In an earlier story published in Volume 21 Issue 13 of The San Pedro Sun, part time resident and investor in San Pedro, Faye Mounteer informed The Sun of her efforts to re-start the project. Her efforts were initiated after purchasing a rental unit that sits in front of the proposed park lot that was sitting vacant and was apparently being used as the local dumpsite. Click here
