Nosotros Park finally has opened, providing an important recreation addition in Calexico. We are sure it will be put to good use by kids and provide a comfort level for parents who will know their kids are off the streets.
It took a lot to make Nosotros Park a reality. Assemblyman Dave Kelley, during his term as our state senator, worked hard to obtain funding that got the project moving forward. City officials came forward with the money to complete the project and get it open — just in time for the winter break when kids will have two free weeks of mostly nice weather to enjoy the park.
It has taken years to make the project a reality, and while the park does not contain everything city officials and residents desired, it still addresses a need. Perhaps as more funding becomes available there can be additions to the park.
