On Saturday March 11, the public is invited to tour the La Plancha railway station and staging yards in central Merida where activists hope to create a large Central Park-style green space.
The tour, which will leave from the railway station at 9 a.m., will last about three hours. The departure point is located at Calle 55 and 48.
A master plan has been developed for Gran Parque la Plancha, which intends to convert abandoned railroad yards between Calles 55 and 43 and Calles 48 and 46 into a much-needed park that would reclaim a no-man’s-land and eyesore in Merida’s urban core.
Cristina de León, project coordinator for Parques de Mexico, said the group is actively recruiting volunteers from both expat and local communities to lend time and expertise to the La Plancha project.
Interested volunteers should contact Parques de Mexico at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 999 944 4060.
