Maintain the Charm of Old Vallarta
In 2011, a small group of civic-minded residents lead by Bob Price, founder of the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, recognized that modernization in historic areas would create a concrete jungle unless landscaped green space was developed and maintained. Thus, the Garden Club was born. As the city began to install new sidewalks in Old Town and Centro, space was reserved for future planter boxes and plantings. Today, after an ongoing effort entailing tens of thousands of plants, donations of several million pesos and countless volunteer hours, the major streets of Old Town are in bloom and the little city that grew up still retains its pueblo charm.
