Parque Ventana al Mar - San Juan, PR
Located along the beach in the Condado section of San Juan, Parque Ventana al Mar is an extremely popular destination for both residents and tourists. Being situated between two successful hotels (La Concha Resort and Vanderbilt Hotel) the hotel owners teamed with the Puerto Rico Tourism Company to upgrade and restore the beach access and dune portions of the park to reduce erosion, improve and enhance the dune vegetation, create defined beach access points and provide open space for public use and functions.
Originally designed by the architect Andres Mignucci more than 10 years earlier, the park was in need of restorative design to address the degrading caused over the years in the space between the park hardscapes and existing malecon. In this environmentally sensitive area, THDC was tasked with creating an attractive and environmentally resilient dune buffer that protects and enhances the beach dunes, vegetation while creating a usable and safe public space.
