Park "La Esperanza"

I will repeat that "I LOVE PUERTO RICO" for the rest of my life. I have been sharing some pleasant places to visit here on our wonderful island of Puerto Rico by writing some hubs. This hub is to present The Esperanza Park.

My middle sister was telling us about this park and her son showed us the way. He shared his experiences, all from the Esperanza Park, all through the trip. Arriving there, we found we really love it. The first impression was a deep feeling of peace found in a corner that I did not know it's existence. A Chinese proverb says: "The two words, peace and tranquility , are worth a thousand pieces of gold."

La Esperanza Park is located in the municipality of Cataño. You can access this park through the PR-165, entering Palo Seco Street next to the facilities of the Bacardi. The park has parking at a reasonable price and is administered and maintained by the municipal administration.

This park is on a key. A key is a small, low-elevation, sandy island formed on the surface of a coral reef. Keys occur in tropical environments throughout the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Their surrounding reef ecosystems also provide food and building materials for island inhabitants. You cannot get into the water as it is forbidden to swim at this beach.

Wind energy


Energy of Park "La Esperanza"

Part of the park lighting is made possible by solar energy and that is a real good alternative to be followed by everyone. Solar and wind energy are the most abundant energy sources in the world. They help reduce reliance on fossil and directly reduces pollutant CO2 emissions and oil spills.

A mill is a machine that converts wind into usable energy. This energy comes from the action of the wind on the blades attached to a common axis. The rotary axis can be connected to various types of machinery to grind grain, pump water or generate electricity. When the shaft is connected to a load such as a pump, it takes the name of the windmill. If used for power generation is called a wind turbine generator.

The facilities of park "La Esperanza":

Park "La Esperanza" offers an extension of God's creation to be contemplated, to think intently and at length for spiritual purposes. It also offers some facilities to share a quality of time with those we love like:

  • picnic areas
  • booths equipped with barbecues, drinking water and electricity
  • playground
  • basketball court
  • walking trails
  • areas to fish

Enjoying God's creations

Oil is seen through out the water and it brings this sad sensation because people are fishing in those waters. We saw garbage around but we noticed that most of it was coming through the streams from the bay.

We also identified a plan of action for trash removal, hoping this is what we can say and think like the last International Coastal Cleanup in Puerto Rico, that conducted worldwide by the Ocean Conservancy organization and that Puerto Rico organized primarily by Scuba Dogs, along with thousands of people from all sectors.

International Coastal Cleanup

We cannot depend on organizations only; cleaning and maintaining the environment is a call for everyone of us. It is so easy to point at garbage and put a disgraceful face as easy as to get a bag, pick the garbage up and throw it in a waste can.

We all do things in different ways, you may just go alone, with your family, the community, or join a group to be part of keeping clean the environment. However, if you cannot pick garbage for personal situations, perhaps you can spread the word in many other creative and simple forms. We all need to be conscious of the importance of having the environment clean.

Below you will observe three charts with results from the International Coastal Cleanup:

A- Ocean Conservancy Data Release - Top ten participating countries

B- Stop throwing your garbage - Top ten items found

C- Threats to wildlife

Coastal cleanup

The planet is full of parks and great places; peace, tranquility and cleansing begins within the dignity of the human being. Join the international Coastal Cleanup here.

I agree with Dwight D. Eisenhower's quote:

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."

You could start enjoying God's creations by keeping Mother nature clean and by spreading the word with the help of the info-graphics below (click to download the help kit).

Enjoy more of this wonderful park in a hub written by my wonderful and loving husband: The Crab Invasion. Since Park La Esperanza is in the municipality of Cataño, I added a video at the end of this interesting place for your enjoyment.

Blessings to all!

      shiningirisheyes God created a wonderful earth. I think that you are lucky for having the great experience of sky diving and flying in an open cockpit bi-plane.
