PLAZA LAS GAVIOTAS REMODELATION
There was an abandoned Plaza in Nazareno that was not in the best of conditions for people to go and enjoy their activities.
AIF gathered the neighbors nearby to help remodeled an area of the Plaza and transform it into whats known as a Sport court: They painted lines for a basketball court, rebuilt the baskets and replaced the nets, constructed football goalposts, volleyball posts, constructed benches with a shade clothe protection, and even planted various trees and plants.
Nowadays, they work as a team and are organized with different activities to maintain this area in the best possible condition: They clean the field and benches, water the green area, and protect the plaza against vandalism.
The most important part of this project is that people from the surrounding areas were involved, and felt as though it was their own plaza, thus wanting to take a vested interest in the plaza and its care. A sense of community was created.
