The new Children's Theme Park "Dante Quinterno" pays homage to the creator of several comic book characters who have invited to the reading and recreation of many children and adolescents. Dante Quinterno is the creator of characters like Patoruzú, Don Fierro and Isidoro Cañonez, who are the inspiration for this new tourist attraction in the city.
The new initiative came as part of a project developed by students at the Escuelita del Rio during a workshop on Participatory Planning for Environmental Education Projects, by the technique Pujadas Daniela, who is responsible for the area of tourism in the locality.
The need for children's recreational space was the main reason for creating this project. Besides the characters embodied in the works of artists José Kura and Daniela Almeidas, the park will feature games for children with special needs and recreational areas to relax and have a great day outdoors.
