Square 27 de Septiembre (September 27th) in Los Mochis

Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

An emblematic space of Los Mochis, Square 27 de Septiembre stands out as one of the most charming corners of this hospitable, until recently, sugar-cane producer city.
Populated with greenery and the boisterous chirping of the evening birds, that at night looks like a nest of lights that welcomes passersby and couples in love that swarm about between care for meadows and the aromas from the snacks stalls and stuffed churros.

For many years now, heavy trucks driven by donkeys and mules, which left dust behind on the winter and sank in the mud on hot months with rainy days, have stopped passing by.

It was the year 1922 and this progressive city “Where the palm trees touch the sky” was barely an incipient town that was erected around the steaming chimneys of the sugar mill that gave it life.
The real ownership of this property, which is a hectare long, was discussed for a long time.

However, in the September 15th Carnivals and other public festivities of that time, the inhabitants swirled around rising to the starry sky, their joyful shouting along with the firework lights and the happy sounds of Sinaloa’s band.

However, there is evidence of the sale that the Los Mochis Agricultural Company made to the honorable City council of Ahome, in the register on public record number 158 second book written by the public notary in the State, C. Esq. Francisco Gastelum, on October 2nd, 1930, where it is stated that “the Los Mochis Agricultural Company, Civil Limited Company, sells, relinquishes and transfers all its rights and actions, customs uses and servitude to the honorable City Council of Ahome, the lot that occupies La Sinaloa Park. The sale price is 50.00 Mexican silver”.
The evolution of this family recreation center was slow. The bustling population grew by increasing the number of habitants and the demand for basic services to supply houses that sprang almost frenetically, requiring the attention to other sectors.
It was thus that, little by little, the old La Sinaloa Park underwent transformation after transformation, generation after generation, changes and modifications that made it what today is: a pride for the Mochitenses and the delight and admiration of its visitors.
The city’s rapid growth has taken the September 27th Square to be placed on a commercial and progressive touristic sector where the magic of the provincial square cannot go unnoticed by its neighbors or passersby.
