The Holguín City Park of Cuba project is reinforced every day as a defender of the tangible and intangible cultural values of Holguin, seen through its system of parks and squares.
Created in 2015 at the initiative of a group of specialists from the provincial delegation of the National Union of Architects and Construction Engineers of Cuba, the strategic plan is today a great platform for the articulation of initiatives that have the city as the main beneficiary.
Oscar Bellido, one of the coordinators of the program, affirms that among the main results of the program is the creation of the City Park Magazine, of quarterly frequency, which has become a space to generate reflections and create awareness.
The program includes a rock on the third Thursday of each month, whose only requirement of participation is to love this eastern land where teachers, artists, communicators, historians and architects, among other professionals, arrive, he said.
It also meant the Integral Urbanism Workshop with national scope and foreign participation as another of the spaces of great impact and which has among its main moments the festival of parks, which is developed in unison in all places.
Up to each scenario, Bellido argued, the community groups arrive as protagonists of the event to show their particularities through the direct link with children, housewives and adults of the third age in activities of great interest such as crafts and dance of typical Cuban dances .
He assured that by 2018 they will promote the landscape rehabilitation of some of the main avenues and distributions, as well as the rescue of some of the parks located in peripheral communities, while others will be transformed, as will be the parks of Science and Humanities at the University of Holguin.
To promote in Cuba a network of city parks where Holguín is the pioneer and to create the Casa Grande, a place that will exhibit to residents and visitors the model with the final representation of the city, constitutes another of the aspirations of the program that transits for its fourth year of experience.
