The park is very nice with many fountains and trees, however, the whole park is full of leaves of the maple tree so the halls and the fountains do not look as nice as they could be if it was clean.

Gorgeous tropical landscaping and water features. We went early Sunday morning and enjoyed the solitude. An easy walk from the centro, and a must do. Also, nearby La Estancia restaurant has great food and view of the park.

This park is perfect to get in touch with nature and relax a bit. Also, if you'd like to do other activities or bring your kids to play. There are different activities offered such as rappelling, zip line, football courts, and a small zoo-like area....More

This park is fun to walk around! On weekends they sometimes offer a free zipline rice, which is very fun! I would recommend for sure!

What a great find in the middle of the city with lovely nooks and crannies at every turn. There is also a zip line in the middle of the park.

I totally enjoyed walking in this park. There also is a "zoo" with some snakes and birds that had been injured and that they are taking care of. It's an oasis in the city
