This project encompasses an impressive 5,700 square meters of construction within a 20,560 square meter intervention area.

The construction will be carried out by the Tourism Infrastructure Execution Committee (CEIZTUR) of the Ministry of Tourism (Mitur) and is estimated to cost RD$300,780,963.26. The facility will include a recreational plaza spanning 17,760 square meters, parking for 102 vehicles, 7 buses, and 36 motorcycles, along with extensive landscaping, a 2,567 square meter children’s area, lighting, security measures, and various amenities for visitors.

Additionally, it features storage spaces, bull stables for festivities, dressing rooms, a ticket office, an information point, a gift shop, and a waiting area.
