As part of his public policy of promoting sports and well-being in the communities of Caguas, Mayor William Miranda Torres recently helped inaugurate a walking track and an outdoor gym in the Arbolada urbanization.

“This project exemplifies the importance we give to community projects through sports and daily exercise that contributes to a better quality of life for people of all ages,” the mayor said, highlighting that the project was the result of the collaboration and participation of the Arbolada Residents Association and the municipal administration.

Miranda Torres noted that “this project exemplifies what our model of citizen participation and governance is, since the residents’ association contributed $20,000 for the design and permitting costs for the walking track and the municipal administration took care of the construction costs.”

The project includes an asphalt walking track, a concrete square, benches, garbage containers, lampposts, electrical improvements and grass, among other features. The cost of construction was $131,807.15 from the federal Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The residents’ association will also be in charge of reforesting the passive park, for which the contribution from the association will be some $50,000.

“I trust that this will be a space for benefit and well-being,” the mayor said during the inauguration. “These facilities are for your enjoyment, so I invite you to take care of and make good use of them, and give them their proper maintenance. …”
