  • The JBN is a great Lung in the middle of the air pollution in Santo Domingo by the large number of vehicles and the madness that is handled here as well as noise. I live in Arroyo Hondo, near the garden and it's a preciodo place for walking, first by the safe of the area and by the beauty of it. Every year we celebrate an event very cool, which consists of walking 5km within the area and whenever vences 1 km you spray with powder of corn of a different color, and at the end of the tour you will get a medal, no matter the time that afternoon, what is needed is to get. Registration money is to help children with heart problems and includes a pullower, bag, glasses and an envelope with detergent liquid ah and along the way there are tanks filled with bottles of water ice. To get to the goal you can enjoy a very good Rock concert. It is a Festival for the whole family assist from the babies in their cars queueing the sbuelos in wheelchair. I have been involved with my 4 teenagers nieyos and we spent it super. If you feel young embullate for this year 2017
