Educational ProgramsPark Rangers take participants back in time through educational programs and walks inside the forts. Come and visit our Discovery Center, the heart of the educational programming for children, is just a few steps away from the historic entrance of Castillo San Cristobal. Located in what was originally a residence for US Army personnel in the 20th Century, it features hands-on activities. A stimulating environment created to arouse curiosity and interest in the fortifications of Old San Juan. We provide new ways for children to connect to their shared heritage and stories of those who built and preserve these structures.
