Inspired by the "Aterro do Flamengo" in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the coastal strip features large green areas, trees and tropical plants and flowers to adorn the beautifully landscaped gardens. For recreation,
• There are multiple basketball and small soccer courts
• 3.5 miles of bike
• little over 7 miles of sidewalks.
Other facilities include a pedestrian ramp for the disabled, free parking, water fountains, public restrooms, public telephones, WiFi internet access and lighting.
Opened in June 2009, the coastal strip extends along Balboa Avenue, one of the most important roads in Panama City, with six lanes for traffic, three in each direction to facilitate the smooth flow of vehicles, and there are two viaducts and several places to make a U-turn.
It is an ideal place for recreation in full harmony between nature and the growing metropolis of the capital, designed to provide a healthy distraction in a beautified environment.
