Ypao Beach park pavilions get overhaul

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Community leaders came together to revamp Joseph F. Flores Park at Ypao Beach in Tumon. Refurbished pavilions unveiled the second phase in a project spearheaded by the Rotary Club. Project chairperson Nita Baldovino says as part of the groups on going community service, a series coined "Gifts to Guam".  18 pavilions will be renovated.

Three were redone during the projects first phase and nine during the second. The final three will be completed during the final phase.  The price tag for the project is $44,000 thus far (about $9,300 per pavilion).  Said Baldovino, "It's a good project that we will be part of the tourism industry and the community, as well.  There will be families here and friends for generations to come to enjoy the park; I think that's the reason the Rotary Club of Tumon Bay embraced the project."

The project kicked off in February, made possible through fundraisers and donations from the Rotary Club.
