Updated on April 30, 2014

The rehabilitation and improvements to Enrique Martí Coll Lineal Park in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico, had the park under a temporary closure, finally reopened for visitors to enjoy it's splendor pathway.

This park is also known as The Lineal Park of Puerto Rico Garden. The closure of the facility was in response to structural damage received as a result of the impact of a boat. The copper wiring was also stolen, so the electricity service was interrupted in the area. The rehabilitation and improvement project invested a total of $630,616.00, since it needed additional repairs for the time that the park was out of use.

What will you find?

This park consists of a route measuring 1.5 miles. The visitor goes through a natural show starting with amazing sounds of birds and hidden creatures. The sound of technology arrives as airplanes, boats, jet skies and the train adds an interaction that makes the trip a lesson without having a real teacher. The route is used for:

  • walking
  • jogging
  • cycling
  • observation of the mangrove (endangered habitat)

This lineal park is also an important place for its ecological value as a habitat for birds, some endangered. It has the largest concentration of indigenous and migratory birds throughout the island.

      This oasis of a park seems beautiful. Although it is sad to know even the copper wiring isn't safe.

      Glad they repaired and reopened
