Santa Rosalia facelift


We went to Santa Rosalia yesterday and the first park, right near the train on display, is completely redone and absolutely GORGEOUS.

It was almost 100 degrees and humid as ever but under the trees, easily 10 degrees cooler.

I shall let my model (Mom) show it off:

Very nice upgrade! Wouldn't it be nice if they could clean up/ improve Hwy 1 thru town. I noticed the new Coppel and Sorianna(?) from the backside below. That also must be a great addition. Hey, MOM! We can see where you get your Energy, Blanca. Thanks. Tomas

I was last through there in April when they were building the walls that surround the park. We always stop at one of the taco stands by the park. The walls are substantial and high. It will take a major, major flood to damage the park again, but that's where it all happens when flood waters flow to the sea. The area is like the spout of a funnel with water flowing out of the hills to the west.

Painting tree trunks white is a time honored method of young tree protection often found in orchards and tree farms. There are several purposes but chief among them is to prevent cracking and splitting of the tender new bark, which can allow introduction of disease, insects and fungus.Mar 25, 2015

I've also been told it was to keep rats from climbing the tree, whether it's true or not I don't know.

yup, doing nice work in the town but the highway is a tad crappy,,,
and this is the county seat town with an immigration office so all tourists see this while passing through.

I just received pics of Mulege where also they are tearing up all the old sidewalks and replacing them in the main part of town...
now if the water could be funneled somewhere else when the hurricanes decide to come across..
spending a lot of money on projects that you would think would usually be secondary to other areas of need....
but what the heck, I am just an old grouchy gringo that tries to look at the brighter side....

Your mom- and the park- look beautiful!

Hope you're well.

I don't recall it being wiped out after really bad hurricane of 2014.

The walls were already there, and remained there after the hurricane. There was no multi-color letters feature or nice pergolas, and the whole plateau looked meaningless, like a traffic circle built higher than normal. When crossing to the car (left it there as there was no parking anywhere in downtown, as usual in late morning), you have to either climb the plateau or walk around it. I climbed - bad idea, placement of stairs on either side wasn't done with pedestrian flows in mind, so on the other corner I had to jump down.
