With joint efforts by the three levels of government, the first phase of this park is being constructed

Today Governor Marina del Pilar was present at and supervised the first phase of the Esperanto Park construction which will be located at the Abelardo L. Rodríguez dam in the city of Tijuana; it will be the biggest green area center of Baja California in order to benefit present and future generations of Baja Californians.

“All of us are working together with the National Commission of Water to take advantage of these areas and have more green areas. By using all of these hectares, we are making sure that new neighborhoods are built with green areas,” she said.

As such, Marina del Pilar spoke about a recent initiative that strengthens the obligation that neighborhoods will have in order to create more green areas. It will force them not to use these areas for other ends or commercial purposes, since the health and wellbeing of Baja Californians must be the priority.

It should be noted that, through company Nación Verde, the park will have a watering system that will allow the trees to be in the best conditions possible to benefit present and future generations.

The state governor acknowledged citizens, businesses, and civil society organizations that are joining efforts so that the Esperanto park becomes a reality for Tijuana, Tecate, and Rosarito families. She highlighted that they have demonstrated commitment and social responsibility in promoting a project that will positively impact the wellbeing of thousands of people.

She gave as an example organization Pronatura, which will work in reforestation efforts as well as activities that will make progress easier regarding the development of the park.

Meanwhile the Secretary of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Mónica Juliana Vega Aguirre, informed that the Esperanto park will also have trees from other areas in Tijuana that were removed for several reasons, allowing them to be used in a sustainable project in the medium and long term, by providing shade and improving air quality.

Lastly, the Secretary of Infrastructure, Urban Development, and Territory Redesign of Baja California, Arturo Espinoza Jaramillo, revealed that the first phase consists of more than 30,000 trees at the amphitheater, a recreational area for children, a lookout, and a series of areas so that families can enjoy this space.

The state official highlighted that the 40 hectares of the Esperanto park will make it bigger than Morelos Park, which is why the Marina del Pilar administration’s goal is to make this green urban area the biggest green area in the entire state. He added that the state government and the National Commission of Water (CONAGUA) are working closely together to carry out the necessary actions.
