Parque Central (Central Park) in La Palma

Friday July 23, 2010

I have probably traveled to more than 100 Parque Centrals throughout South and Central America and every time I visit one a sense of jealousy occurs. Regardless of the size of the town, everything revolves around the central park. Children play there and family and friends congregate there just to socialize rather than get home to watch more television. I am not sure why our culture does not have this but I can only assume that our towns are built around the highways rather than the highways built to the town.  Still a little sad that the majority of towns don't have this. I believe the Spanish got it right here.
