Parque Del Litoral

Much like the Centennial Olympic Park was built in Atlanta, Georgia for the Olympics, in 2009, Parque Del Litoral was built when Puerto Rico was selected to host the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games.

The park takes over about 42 acres and features the Mayagüez Bay on one side and the José González Clemente Avenue on the other. The José Antonio Figueroa Athletics Stadium and the Isidoro García Stadium as well as Parque Infantil del Milenio are located on the south end of the park.
