The great Pedro Zanni avenue is home to a space that all locals know. Probably there is no childhood that lacks a photo on the lawn of Gazzano Park . An artificial lake and eight hectares of green fall off inside. How to forget the batibounds scattered on the water with children waving happily? Likewise, the postcard of ducks and geese wandering around are part of the collective memory with nostalgia and melancholy. Not that they don't exist anymore, but nothing is what it was. Perhaps, the lack of state care, attempts at privatization or complaints from neighbors have dyed memories in another color.
The uniqueness he possesses is undeniable. Not only because of the beauty it brings to the capital entrerriana, but also for that VAT that goes directly to emotionality . This is the engine that has driven numerous citizens' claims over the years regarding its preservation . As municipal efforts changed, so did policies for their management . Thus, a constant swing was generated in terms of the care that corresponded to it. Even as progress and retreat, the idea of ceding the ground to a private club came to conceive.
That is why, since January 2019, there is a group of self-summoned neighbors called “ Friends of Parque Gazzano ”. The idea arose from their concern when they went out for a walk around the place and watched its deterioration. From there, they have regularly held meetings to think and act about the current news of the tour. It was their complaints and those of other people interested in the problem that managed to capture the attention of the local media. Consequently, the same was achieved with various State authorities. Some heard more and others less.
The space was built on top of the land donated to the city by Don José Gazzano . He was a man from the Italian city of Genoa who arrived in the country at the end of the 19th century. In 1920 he acquired the fifth which would later become the attraction site that is today. While he had originally installed a brickery of his property, he then decided to start a project or for the community . He understood that there was a need to create recreational environments in the area and places that would provide safety and comfort to families. Under this line, he brought tree species that adorned the landscape and on which to this day you can rest.
Then, in September 1981 the deed passed the domain in favor of the Municipality of Paraná was signed. The event was presided over by the head of the commune at that time, Carlos F. Quintero. The objectives were to allocate the land for public walk , considering that it was located in an urbanized area and added oxygenation. Finally, on February 3, 1983 , the park was inaugurated under the name of its founder, a name that still retains.
Destroyed grills, scattered waste, abandoned buildings and overgrown grasslands. This was the recurring image that took prominence over the last few years in the place. Although it was always remembered the moments when it became the scene of multiple cultural and sporting events. Or the lakeside mattes and the children in the hammocks . However, in recent months, overhaul and maintenance work began to place it again at the center of the meetings. Today, at the age of 100 , row geese are part of the show as the sun falls behind the grove. Let's hope it's going to be something permanent again.
