This mangrove-bordered park was inaugurated in 1979 for the Pan-American Games. It covers 35 acres (14 hectares) and lies southeast of Miramar. Joggers appreciate its labyrinth of trails, and a long boardwalk runs along mangrove canals. It boasts 20 tennis courts, four racquetball courts, a full track-and-field area with stadium bleachers, exercise trails, and children’s play area. A golf course is being developed on an adjacent former landfill and an Olympic standard diving and swimming arena was completed several years ago. Fat, huge iguanas slither from the mangrove-choked channels and into the park’s pathways.
