A small park within sight of the Juan Santamaría airport control tower got a facelift Sunday.

Police officers and workers at nearby businesses swept the small park for trash, plastic bottles and other garbage.

The park can be the first place visitors see as they leave the airport, security ministry officials noted. This also is a location where sometimes horses can be seen being ridden by children as their parents enjoy a day off.

The Policía Turística took credit for setting up the clean-up project. Volunteers came from local hotels, including Coconut House, Casa Tago and Villa Pacandé, said the Ministerio de Gobernación, Policía y Seguridad Pública.
