New 20-Acre Park to Aid Mexico City in Fighting Pollution

September 15, 1987|United Press International

MEXICO CITY — President Miguel de la Madrid has inaugurated a 20-acre park in the north of the capital as part of the city's campaign to put aside more green space and combat pollution.

The park, called Alameda de Norte, features a recently restored 100-year-old glass-and-tile pavilion that was originally displayed at the New Orleans World's Fair in 1884.

Refurbished at a cost of $10,000, the park also features lawns and sports facilities. The city recently alloted $350,000 to preserve green spaces in the capital, where more than 19 million people live.
