Mayor Cristina Diaz presented the Canada Blanca Sports Unit construction project, which will be completed in two months, to the families and members of Lucky Haskin Little League Baseball.
Cristina Díaz said the sports project includes a semi-Olympic pool, synthetic grass for a multipurpose basketball court; soccer field 7; and a baseball field with natural grass, as well as a playground with “Lupita” the giraffe.
In his speech, the mayor noted that 40,000 residents of neighboring areas would be affected, and that this would be complemented with services and workshops to encourage and promote the practice of various sports among girls and boys as well as adolescents.
“A sports unit that was outstanding for the families of the region; We wanted to make a semi-Olympic pool because there are many kids here who probably want to be athletes, sportsmen at heart, others wish they had soccer fields and they had synthetic grass, all this with the DIF Center sports unit is the largest, most complete and equipped in these 3 years”, explained the mayor.
The municipal president stressed that along with this, it wants to promote other sports such as football, and even disciplines such as swimming; Sport is a priority issue for the Government of Guadeloupe.
