The Paseo Xolotlán won the first place and a special recognition in the national contest of the "Emblematic Park Best Care in the Country", organized by the Nicaraguan Institute for Municipal Development (INIFOM), in salute to the Bicentennial of the Independence of Central America.
One of the requirements that the park should have to win is that it be representative of Nicaraguan history and culture, and this can be seen in the models of the 35 most representative churches in the country, the San Jacinto farm house, the replicas of the houses of General Augusto C. Sandino, Blanca Arauz, the Prince of Castilian letters and father of modernism Rubén Darío and La Estación del Ferrocarril.
The award ceremony was made by colleague Rosaura Loaisiga, representative of INIFOM, to the Secretary of the Managua Council, Jennifer Porras.
Comrade Loáisiga explained that choosing this park for the contest was a good decision, because in addition to offering recreation to families, it also transmits culture.
“In this national contest we have selected the municipality of Managua, for having the best-kept, most beautiful theme park, which has brought recreation and tourism to Nicaraguan families, this park is not only well-cared for, but also offers a destination tourism, being an emblematic park, also reflects the history and culture of our country ”.
Secretary Porras, upon receiving the award on behalf of all Managuas, recalled the effort made by the Good Government to promote national identity.
“The creation of this park and the recovery of the lake's shoreline and the entire Bolívar Avenue was possible due to the political will of our government, led by Commander Daniel and our Vice President, Compañera Rosario Murillo, they have been years of continuous work for that. We were building the Paseo Xolotlán in stages. Today the thousands of visitors to this park, in addition to offering them a recreational space, are offered a place where they can learn about our cultural identity ”.
