The pedestrian promenade of Calle Narváez begins to show a face more in keeping with the 325th anniversary of the founding of the city of Matanzas. The reality is that it now contrasts markedly with the unfavorable image of Calle Comercio, located at the other end of the San Juan River.
Leonel Párez Orozco, Conservator of the yumurina city, told Radio 26 that to reverse this situation a group of projects will be implemented in this area that will help to improve the environment and the aesthetics of this space, such as the one designed for the back of the old Ronera Yucayo, where an organopónico will be created that will supply vegetables to the residents of the neighborhood of Pueblo Nuevo.
Spacious areas for resting with benches and trees, and for practicing physical exercises will also be allocated. Another purpose is the construction of a small amphitheater for the realization of cultural activities and a place will be granted for the project of integration, intervention and Afroatenas transformation, of the neopoblana neighborhood.
Comercio Street will also benefit from an initiative of the Monuments and Historical Sites Office that proposes the restoration of the wharves and fishermen’s houses that are located between the Calixto García and Sanchez Figueras bridges. Later this area will be paved.
