Great gardens and ponds. A place to enjoy and relax. Everyone look relaxed there. Great to visit and pic the statue of Oscar Wilde Memorial, as well a surprise to discover a bust of O'Higgins linked to South America's history of independence.

This is a beautiful green area right in the middle of the city. The Oscar Wilde statue in very neat. There were artists selling their wares just outside of the gates to the square. Very talented. I loved the Giants Garden sign.

The park is situated very close to the city center. It's not very big but really lovely. You'll find a monument to Oscar Wild there & it's worth a look. There are quite many benches in the park where you can relax. There is also...More
