Not long ago the area of La Sabana and Rohrmoser, that today includes the public park, the national stadium, and sprouting highrise tower, was green, surrounded by coffee plantations.

Though the photo above is black and white, the dark areas are the green that today has been taken over by urban development.

If you look closely, you can see the original stadium and an airplane either landing or taking off, when the Sabana park served as the country’s main airport.

The runway was grass in the direction southwest to northeast. Next time you visit the park, looking in from the northeast corner, you can still see a clearing between the trees of the runway. The art museum was the control tower.

The photo above is the same area, taken from the same angle, today. The national stadium has changed, the park now has a lake.

Missing in this photo are the numerous towers that have since been built, that continually change the area’s skyline.
