El Parque de Bombas has a unique and wonderful history. They are open every day from 8:30am- 3:00 pm. When you visit make sure to ask them to tell you the story of the January 25th gunpowder fire!

So much history in this place. Parque de Bombas is located right on the city square and has many items throughout the firefighting history of Ponce.

A very nice, fun place to stop by (and get out of the sun for a while). Our 4-year old boy was extremely happy to be this close to old fire trucks!

My uncle was the last fireman to work at this fire station back in 1960's.I remember vividly, my mother would drop by to see him during his lunch break. Great memories. It is one of PR's most notable buildings, by far the most easily recognized landmark in the Island. In 1990, the fire station was closed and was converted into a museum. On July 12, 1984, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. I take great pride in sharing this with friends; my uncle Calixto was a great person.

El parque and architecture around historic Ponce is beautiful. Unfortunately the area has not fully recovered from Maria and economic struggles. The trip thru the island interior was fantastic and the mountain scape seaside of Ponce made the trip. But most of the quaint shops are gone. Se Vende signs everywhere and renovations are happening on every block outside the square. The police presence was so thick it alarmed me also but it was actually like any area of tourism. We felt safe. Just not much going on for tourists as of yet. La Guancha boardwalk was plan B but the seaside was was blocked by policia and we googled that it also was being rebuilt. I still plan to revisit and support the regrowth as a tourist. The beauty is enough

Parque de Bombas ( Firehouse ) sits in a scenic park. Restaurants, shops and hotels are a walking distance from the area.

Not a lot going on at the Parque de Bombas, but it’s colorful and nice. We have a big family (8 of us) and made it though in 5 mins. It’s good to see if you’re there, but not worth a trip from San Juan.

Great history. A landmark you should see in this trip. We stayed in San Juan and took the scenic drive to Ponce. Less than 2 hours and beautiful drive.

We didn’t get to go inside and take a tour. The local police let us peep inside and explained to us what certain things are. It’s pretty fascinating how well kept and maintained some of the old fire engines are kept. Definitely has to be worth a visit!
