In general, just a park. A very nice park, but nothing extraordinary. Don't expect to have your mind blown. It's better as a meeting point, or a guiding central area from where start your tourist visits. PROs - Nice clean park - Lots of cats (if you like them) - Many stores and sightseeing around it - At night there... More

I was told that there was a bird problem, so someone had the brilliant idea of bringing in all of the stray cats they could find...and many of them stayed! Nice to walk around in the evening.

Daytime visits are quiet and restful. A good place to sit and rest in the shade of a tree. In the evening, it's the place to people watch, and see the kitties. The cats are out in full force, though they are shy. Really, it's just a park, but sometimes we need a park.

We had a great time strolling through Parque Kennedy, especially at night! There are lots of yummy street foods for sale, and a cool little night market!

Guide books push this park as the center of tourism but it is simply a parking the city. There are supposed to be lots of cats but on our visit we only saw one. There are art venders set up along the sides but we saw most of the same "originals" in many shops in the surrounding streets.

We visited the park in the evening where there was market stalls in the center until about 10pm. Its nice to just take time out to sit and people watch. We witnessed a cat feed time. One area of the park is used to feed all the stray cts in the area. Of course that means they will never leave.... More

It is a cleaned and green park to visit with small children. Even at night it was safe to seat on the benches. There is parking underground. Many restaurants around the park to eat & drink. Easy access to Plaza Vea(grocery shopping). The Mirabus booth is right next to the park.
