Fifth Annual Spring Fiesta in Guadiana Park

Unfinished Path

By Signe Hammer

Come party in Guadiana Park and help keep the restoration work going! On Saturday, April 7, gather with friends and neighbors from 3–6pm to enjoy the beautifully restored fountain plaza on the lower level. Eat, drink, and dance to the music of the Green River Band and help support this gem among San Miguel parks.

We still need to raise money to complete the restoration of the lower level, including durable ground cover along the Guadiana side so that families can once again enjoy picnics and children can play. You can contribute by purchasing an inscribed stone for the Walk of Fame. These stones honor loved ones—people and pets—or the park itself.

If you haven’t seen the park lately, this is a great time to stroll through it. The pollinator garden on the upper level is mature and humming with bees. Try the paths meandering through the flowers and foliage, and eventually you’ll find yourself on the lower level, where the plazas and nearly all the paths are finished.

We are still waiting for the city to complete the last two sections of pathway, including the andador (walkway) along the west end of the park between Guadiana and Potranca. But, thanks to the hard work of the outgoing Amigos del Parque Guadiana steering committee, most of the infrastructure called for in the Park Master Plan is finished.

The new steering committee will gradually begin to focus on maintaining the park, including cleaning la plaga—mistletoe and epiphytes (air plants)—from the belt of ancient mesquite and pepper trees that divides the upper and lower levels. Eventually, a membership plan will enable Guadiana residents and friends to share in the upkeep of their favorite park.

Wine, water, and soft drinks will be available for purchase, as will Juliana’s delicious hamburgers and hotdogs. Guadiana residents know her grill-restaurant at the end of Potranca close to the Ancha.

See you at the fiesta!
