Year Established: 1929
Description:

Puerta de Tierra, as the area that leads into Old San Juan is known, is oftentimes overlooked precisely because of its close proximity to the historic city. A closer view of the area reveals a bevy of attractions, including parks, beaches, pedestrian walkways, hotels, and historical sites, all located within walking distance of each other.

The Parque Luis Muñoz Rivera is the island’s first urban park, created in 1929, and serves as the area’s central hub. Named in honor of one of the island’s most influential public figures, the famed Puerto Rican poet and politician was a staunch supporter of autonomous government and his legacy is now commemorated with a statue in front of an open-air stage.

The park’s 25 acres constitute a much needed green enclave in the middle of the city, allowing visitors to relax around the numerous fountains and benches, shaded by copious trees. A stroll down Paseo de los Próceres reveals a row of statues of prominent Latin American figures like Simón Bolívar.

Also noteworthy is the Polvorín San Gerónimo – a remodeled 18th century armory that played an integral role in defending the city of San Juan against invading enemies. Other amenities such as playgrounds and gazebos make the park an excellent location for family outings.
