The park in La Floresta had seen better times.
The La Floresta traffic school in San Juan del Rio, Mexico, was suffering from neglect as the city outgrew its resources. The road signs were rusty. The traffic signals didn’t work. And the grounds needed tending. But hope was not lost.
“We learned the city could re-start its community programs if we could revitalize the park,” said Luis Fernández, reg. tech. dir., industrial coatings, Mexico technical lab. “We committed then to painting the playground, fences, benches and buildings.”
