Conzatti Park street art

Ten years ago, we lived on Jacobo Dalevuelta in Oaxaca's Jalatlaco neighborhood. We decided to visit our old haunts last weekend, and found that the government had decided to remodel our old neighborhood park, Parque Conzatti.
Back then, we bought veggies there during the Friday market, dodged couples making out after dark, and cut through it to get to the main thoroughfare.
Now, it's super-manicured, with patterned plantings and all new cobblestone. A little sterile, I thought, so I was happy to see this charming figure on a signboard in the park.
