Las Tortugas Park remains closed  


Continúa cerrado el parque Las Tortugas

0 23 de noviembre de 2015  by Cliserio E. Cedillo
  Las Tortugas park was closed two months ago, for maintenance, and although it appears that the renovation work has been completed, the park has not been reopened. This is a very popular playground because it is near the colonias of La Gloria, Amplification La Gloria, and Guadalupana, and parents want it reopened. They also say there is a need to repair some streetlights.
