AAA Editor Notes
Luis Muñoz Rivera National Park (Parque Nacional Luis Muñoz Rivera) is on Avenida Luis Muñoz Rivera in Puerta de Tierra. The 27-acre oceanside park honors the statesman and poet who helped Puerto Rico gain its autonomy from Spain in 1897. This land was once a key part of San Juan's military defense; the 1769 powder house that supplied Fort San Jerónimo still stands on the grounds. Cultural events are held at the open-air Pabellón de la Paz.
