This is a nice place for a quick visit. This was my first time back since the late '90s. Still kept beautiful. This place offers just a little history of Ponce. There is a nice recreational Plaza right behind. Nice place to take ice cream and just relax. Be sure to visit other landmarks in the area.

The Parque de Bombas is a classic destination in Ponce. There's a great bus tour that you can take that leaves from here (buy tickets inside). Our tour guide was happy to do the tour in English, Spanish, or both, and was a lot of fun -- and very informative.

It's a cute little firehouse but it's very small. I'd definitely recommend getting tickets here for the small tour of the city. Just a couple bucks and the tourguide is hilarious!

The area is full of history and uniqueness taste. Like locals say, "Ponce is Ponce, the rest..." A must visit site. There is no cover charge, donations are welcome. Visit la Plaza, and local restaurants. Enjoy!

The park itself is more like a small area with a bunch of pigeons flying around. They can be fed after buying the packets of food. Careful, you might get pooped! There's an antique fire house which still remains.

A small but cute museum dedicated to the firefighters in Puerto Rico! The area is very nice and full of restaurants and shopping areas. The ice cream is very famous and good.

Stopped in here many years past when this was a working fire station. It has been transformed into a museum to honor the firefighters. Suggest firefighters bring a patch from home to leave there.

Ponce is a beautiful town and Parque de Bombas is just another GEM to visit. We drove from San Juan to Ponce- and wish we could stay longer that just a day. This small city is beautiful and the Parque de Bombas is a small museum with exciting art on the second floor. DO NOT MISS IT !
