The urban parks designed and constructed by Tenaja Holdings are much more than just parks, they are philanthropic contributions to community development.
Their raison d'être is to add to the beauty and quality of life in La Paz by providing spaces where various activities can take place — such as music, art and readings — and where people are drawn together to meet, talk and relax. Created for public enjoyment, the aim of these pocket parks is to stimulate business, a sense of well being and a thriving, happy community.
Piedras y Pájaros Park
Located in historical downtown La Paz on Constitución between Madero and Belisario Dominguez, the Piedras y Pájaros Park is open to the public between 8am and 8pm in summer, and 7am to 6pm in winter. (Piedras y pájaros means stones and birds in English.)
Here, concerts are organized in coordination with the La Paz Music School, local bands and musicians. Book and poetry readings take place frequently. Residents gather informally to play chess and converse with relaxing water sounds from the Choir in Harmony fountain in the background.
Inaugurated on April 13, 2012, this park is for the benefit of the people of La Paz. Piedras y Pájaros Park is not for sale.
Located on the corner of Revolución and Constitución, across from the post office and just one block from the main square and cathedral of La Paz, the Postal Park is open every day.
This small space offers the community an enjoyable, centrally-located setting to meet, gather and chat. Dedicated to promoting a vibrant downtown La Paz, this park was first opened in 2007.
In August and September of 2015, the park was renovated and a new decorative wall was added. Please see the second photo gallery below to observe some of the changes. We invite you to stop by and enjoy the improvements. Postal Park is not for sale.
