PARK & PUBLIC SPACES
The Pterocarpus Forest nature preserve at Palmas is a unique 51-acre swamp forest, one of the largest remaining in Puerto Rico that serves as habitat to 44 species of flora and 52 species of fauna. From the viewing platform of the 40-foot high wood Observation Tower, you’ll be able to observe the movements of endemic birds such as the Puerto Rican Hummingbird and the Puerto Rican Woodpecker, as well as migratory birds, and enjoy spectacular views of the forest canopy and the surrounding area.
Adjoining the Tower, a gazebo serves as the Forest’s Visitor Center. The open air facility has ample space for educational activities, meetings and pre-approved social gatherings.
