Open-air concerts performed by the Asunción Symphony Orchestra, the rowing federation championships and a sanctuary for migratory birds: the Bay of Asunción offers opportunities for all kinds of leisure activities, including a recently modernised river footpath. Separated from the Paraguay River by the Banco San Miguel and appointed a Natural Biosphere Reserve, its features make it a perfect place for spotting migratory birds. Since 2011 the area has been undergoing an urban plan for its revitalisation, which includes the construction of the Avenida Costanera along the riverbank, including works to prevent discharge and pollution. The plan also includes programmed recreational activities. This has made the Park of Solidarity (Parque de la Solidaridad) - at the beginning of the Bay - become a musical landmark for outdoor concerts, especially at Paraguay's Independence commemorations, which are held every year in May.
