The Urban Legacy has permanent infrastructure works for athletes, families, and the community in general for years to come in Chile. These works include housing spaces, sports infrastructure, green areas, and road works. This will be the most tangible legacy our Games will have.
What’s the goal? To give a new face to different areas in a number of cities, from accessibility to gender perspective and inclusion, in both the sports and the social aspects. The three main axes are:
More first-level sport precincts for high performance sports and open to the community, which will widen the social importance of sports.
The Santiago 2023 Village is a habitational area with high housing standards that facilitate social integration.
Progress in matters of universal accessibility in all competition sport precincts.

SANTIAGO 2023 VILLAGE
The Cerrillos Pan American and Parapan American Village is the habitational area for all those who will be part of the #Santiago2023 Games. After fulfilling its function of hosting and being the operations center for nearly seven thousand athletes in the Games, this residential area will be part of the housing subsidy offer for Chilean citizens, managed by the Chilean Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning.
6000+ people living at the Santiago 2023 Village.
6000+ beds inside the habitational area.
1355+ new houses for low-income families, equivalent to between 3 and 4 people per apartment.
It’s also important to highlight that the Santiago 2023 Pan American and Parapan American Games will be the first of its kind to implement a lactation room in the Village, which will be available for athletes, Para athletes, workers, and volunteers.
COMPETITIONS AND TRAINING SPORT PRECINCTS CONSTRUCTION AND REMODELING
Santiago 2023 has created a State commitment regarding investment in national sport by assigning resources to training and competition infrastructure that will be used by Chilean athletes in the years to come. Another objective is to democratize the practice of sports in the country. The idea is for all people and communities to have access to precincts where they can carry out both high performance sports and leisure activities.
19+ sports precincts built or remodeled throughout the country.
14+ non-competition precincts equipped or reconditioned.
40 public transport stops, accessible and inclusive.
Wider accessibility in sport precincts like the Centro de Entrenamiento Olímpico.
Parque Estadio Nacional: This precinct, which will be the heart of the most important multisport event of the country, will be the main operations center during the development of the Games. It’ll also be one of the biggest and most modern urban sport parks in the Americas, aside from being greatly relevant for the culture and the collective memory of the Chilean people through its Memory road (Camino de la Memoria in Spanish).
64+ hectares of the biggest urban sport park in Latin America, open to the public at all times.
Construction of the Field Hockey fields. First public and central fields with international certifications and high quality standards in the country.
First Paralympic Sports Center. This will be the official home of Paralympic sports in Chile.
The main objective of this project is to strengthen the public transportation for spectators attending the sport precincts from a modern and inclusive point of view. For this reason, many urban interventions will be made, at various levels, such as signaling, better infrastructure surrounding the sport precincts, and the construction and remodeling of public transport stops.
Nowadays, the planning is considering the remodeling of 37 stops in Santiago, 3 in the fifth region, and two in Biobío. These works have to do with improvements in accessibility and signaling, aside from providing said stops with technological and inclusive equipment.
