Akumal Art & Water Community Park

The new Akumal Art & Water Community Park is almost complete! Early 2020, ground was broken on a municipal lot across from the concha and community park in the center of Akumal pueblo. A giant hole was created to prepare for water play fountains...and...the pandemic lockdown halted all work. With additional funding secured, work was resumed in November 2021. As of Fall 2022, final tasks to open the park are underway including new murals by Akumal and nearby artists, curated by project director Jennifer Smith.

Sponsorship for naming benches and perimeter fencing is still open.

 

Inauguration fiesta dates will be announced soon.
