SPTC renovates Central Park Beach for Easter Holidays
Saturday, March 18th, 2017
To make Easter festivities extra special and fun, The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) has embarked on a beach renovation project in front of the Central Park. About 15 truck-loads of sand will be used to enhance the beach, which will be the epicentre of most of the activities during the Holy week in April.
SPTC’s Jorge Aldana believes that such refurbishment of the beach will accommodate better spacing for more activities during the festive periods throughout the year. “Easter season is coming and the beach by Central Park will be used for beach volleyball and other events,” said Aldana. “The DJ Association will also be using that area to host the official Easter events.” Compared to other years, the SPTC, along with the DJ Association, have agreed to have everyone at one area (Central Park) for a massive beach party.
According to Aldana, after this beach renovation, the local authorities plan to start their beach reclamation project. “For us to do some beach reclamation we need to complete a series of scientific tests before we go and alter the environment,” said Aldana. He also stated that such a project is aimed to stop the rapid erosion the island’s eastern shores are experiencing.
The Easter Holidays for this year will commence from April 14th and run through April 17th.
