Parque Mirador provides a new oasis in Sosua
In what was a fairly unattractive car park, new life has been breathed into Sosua. A new park overlooking the ocean on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, named Parque Mirador, Sosua, was inaugarated on Friday at the end of the 'street with no exit' (Calle sin salida), where the well known Waterfront Restaurant is located. The opening ceremony was performed by Ilana Neumann, the Mayor of Sosúa, and was attended by representatives of the Jewish community, the founders of this beach town, in whose honour the park has been built. The beautiful park features a bar, restaurant, a Star of David at the centre and several seats.From these seats you have a beautiful view over Sosua bay.
Close to the park, you can find a synagogue and small but very interesting museum charting the history of the Jewish Settlers who were given refuge in Sosua following World War II. The West Indies Real Estate Office is also close by in Calle David Stern.
