On 11/10/2003 the park closed for what their website is called maintenance reasons. The park was expected to reopen the following year, the reopening did not occur until February 3rd, 2007. At the time of the reopening, just kiddie rides were operating. More and more rides are expected to reopen as time goes on.
This park was the subject of a nationally known scandal during the construction and early years of the park. It involved misdeeds under the former military dictatorship and as a result the park was never properly completed. A lawsuit exists between the city and the former owners "Parques Interama, S.A.", which has yet to be resolved. The park is now operated by the city government under the name "Parque de la Ciudad".
"Parque de la Ciudad" is Spanish for "Park of the City" or "City Park".
