Parque Sucre - City Park Riobamba - Ecuador

Parque Sucre was created in the Plaza de Santo Domingo to honor a hero of the Ecuadorian fight for independence, Antonio José de Sucre. The foundation stone for Parque Sucre was laid on Aug. 10, 1919, and the park was inaugurated on Nov. 11, 1924. In 1913, the inaugural year of Riobamba's municipal water system, the city celebrated with the installation of a large fountain in Plaza Santo Domingo. The fountain, which features the Roman god of the sea, Neptune, surrounded by cherubs, is a centerpiece of Parque Sucre. Visitors can locate the fountain just opposite Colegio Nacional Maldonado.
