Ruta Histórica Ciudad de Guatemala

Parque JocotenangoEn sus inicios conocida como "Plaza Jocotenango", constituyó entre los años 1777 a 1879 el centro social y comercial del Pueblo de Indígenas de Jocotenango de Nuestro Señora de la Asunción. La plaza estaba integrada por una fuente de estilo colonial, un lavadero público y una Ceiba, al norte se encontraba el Templo de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. En 1879 el Municipio de Jocotenango fue suprimido y anexado como un cantón más de la estructura urbana de la ciudad.Los cambios en la plaza como en sus nombres fueron muchos, pero sus características actuales fueron marcadas por la solicitud hecha por la población en 1901 que pedían la construcción de un parque tipo jardín, el cual fue autorizado en 1907 con diseños de Luis Augusto Fontaine. En el caso de los nombres fue hasta el año 2003 cuando el para ese entonces llamado "Parque Morazán" paso a llamarse "Plaza o Parque Jocotenango". Fuente: 1. www.muniguate.com Dra.
