Costa Rica Service Projects

Parkside has begun a relationship with several communities in Costa Rica. Our most recent trip (January 2010) introduced 6 more Parksider’s to the beautiful people and their needs in two locations of this lush country. We will continue our support of the Costa Rican schools and are returning for another service trip January 6-15, 2011.  If you'd like to join us on this eco-travel, mission - service trip, please call the church office for details.

Osa Peninsula

The tiny village of Guadalupe does not even appear on the map of Costa Rica, but can be found nestled in the south central portion of the Peninsula near the entrance of Corcovado National Park, a preserve of primary rain forest. The simple lives of the indigenous Guyami people and local Ticos blend seamlessly with the South Pacific paradise. Their children, however, are in need of support to attend school. Costly uniforms are required throughout Costa Rica and teacher’s supplies are scarce. Parkside purchased 10 more uniforms for Guadalupe children this time, framed in the doors of the new Health Community Center, and painted a boy’s orphanage in San Isidro. As a reward, the group enjoyed a zip line canopy tour on their return route to San Jose.
