Cartagena Circle

The circle became a roundabout when Cartagena in Colombia sent us the a replica of the statue 'My Old Shoes' by Tito Lambrano in the mid 80's. The original sculpture remains in Cartagena.

The Cartagena Plaza or Cartagena Circle is named in honor of the city of Cartagena, our first sister city. It was originally called the Cocoplum Circle, and LeJeune Rd, (the north south road) had the right of way.
