Clean-up for Fort San Cristóbal Beach

Fort San CristóbalThis Saturday morning, the National Park Service (NPS) is sponsoring a clean up of the beach below Fort San Cristóbal. The clean-up will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. For more information call (787) 729-6777.

If you plan on helping out, park at the lower parking lot, just off of Avenida Muñoz Rivera, and meet up at the upper parking lot, just at the top of Lomita Tres Reyes, on Calle Norzagaray. The NPS will provide all of the materials necessary and lead you down the trail to the beach to be cleaned, which is below "The Devil's Guerite". You know the ghost story about the "The Devil's Guerite", right?
