Family Fun at Aguadilla Treehouse and Park

3/16 This park is currently closed for repair.

Aguadilla Treehouse Park

If you are looking for a fun place that the whole family can enjoy, head to Columbus Park (Parque de Colón) on the waterfront in Aguadilla. This little park has something for everyone in the family — a wooden boardwalk overlooking a small beach, playground equipment, and a big wooden treehouse for the kids.

The treehouse (Casa del Arbol) is really nice. It is a large wooden structure built around a huge Banyan tree (a type of Ficus tree).

Aguadilla Treehouse Park

There are stairs, walkways, overlooks, and benches. All along the route there are signs (in Spanish) describing the tree itself, and other ecological and historical things — all written from the tree’s point of view.

I really liked this tree house — it brings out the kid in everyone. But watch your head on the walkways, the tree branches go where they want!

Besides the treehouse, there are a number of grassy/sandy areas with playground equipment and picnic tables.

This park is all oceanfront. There is a wooden boardwalk right along the waterfront, and with benches where you can relax and watch the sunset. For beach lovers, there is a nice little beach area here also — though there are no life guards on duty, so be careful.

We also saw bathrooms and food kiosks, but these were not open when we visited. Those are probably open on weekends and in the summer.

The cross monument (Cruz de Colón), which marks the spot where Columbus supposedly landed on/claimed Puerto Rico in 1493, is here, too. Although, this historical “fact” is disputed by a few of the other western towns.

There was also a small, but nice looking, river boardwalk that is currently closed for repairs. I hope they repair and reopen this area, as it looked very pretty, and it would probably be a good place to watch birds and other wildlife in the mangroves along the river.

While you are in the area, you might want to check out the Aguadilla Ice Skating Rink, or the Skate Park.

Details

There is no charge to use the park, beach, nor treehouse.

We made a long drive to this area from Manati with our kids today and were sad to find the treehouse closed for repairs. A lady we saw and talked to seemed surprised we had come for that and acted as if it's beef shut down for some time. Fortunately the small cove beach was perfect for us to practice our snorkeling skills. Still a great beach but we were disappointed about the treehouse being closed. It looked really neat.

Well it's a long drive if you are thinking just to go check out the tree house park. I suggest you combine it with your visit to Crash Boat Beach. My kids did have fun running around the tree house and it is an impressive tree but 30 min and we were done. Storm came in so, we checked out the beach but thunder prevented us from staying longer on the beach. Skateboard park and ice skating rink are also just down the street.
