Yes, the park is a bit tired and needs a spruce up but it is teeming with vitality and people enjoying all kinds of leisure activities. I like to walk the length of it and go to the Human Rights Museum at he other end.

We visited this park 5 years ago and was very disappointing. We heard lots of money was spent to renovate the park, so we went back with our kids. HUGE disappointment. There is a small pond with peddle boats, which were all poorly maintained -...More

Nice park with well kept green areas, right next to subway station for convenience and a national museum, which sadly is not very good.

In my visit to the museums at Quinta Normal Park in some of them there were not translations to English, that is a desadvantage to the tourist. Despite of it is a good place to visit, it offers so much history.

The park itself is very nice but not spectacular. There are run down buildings with very nice graffiti art, and the park benches are occasional homes of one or two homeless persons. But the location of the park is great. There are several museums all...More
