This project is prepared for Puerto Rico's Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales (DRNA) and Transportation and Public Works Authority. After conducting research, case studies, personal interviews and an evaluation of the Rio Puerto Nuevo Recreation Master Plan, the IQP team provided recommendations for the design and implementation of a 2-mile educational bicycle trail to follow the Rio Piedras River and connect the Luis Munoz Marin Park and the UPR Botanical Gardens. The recommendations in this report will lead to the construction of a trail that will encourage the use of urban recreational facilities and promote an understanding of the importance of green spaces in San Juan.
