A great bulwark located in the city Parque de los Deportes that, after its inauguration, scheduled for the end of this year, will wait with open arms and will be available to more sports, competitions and events so that they can be held in the place.

Since in the center of the work there is a parquet track suitable for any sport and around it, outside the limits of the cycling track, stands so that approximately 5800 San Juan residents can enjoy this sporting beauty.
