A nice walk when you are visiting the Plaza Grau area, where you can visit the arts museum and also have a glimpse of Peruvian lifestyle, mingling with people and appreciating their way of enjoying the parks and plazas of Lima. A nice walk and a nice place to see how Limeños enjoy their city

Located in the center of the city close to the Sheraton Hotel, this very well maintained park has a little of everything. Fountains that work, some statues, nice gardens and trees, a restaurant, park benches and two museums. One, the Lima Museum of Art (MALI) is a must see. Best of all there is underground parking and public transportation.

Spend some time here - for free! - reading a book in the sun, relaxing or people-watching. A nice spot for some traveller's downtime.

You can reach this park via a 20-30 minute walk from the centro historico but only do this during the day and stay on main streets and watch your pockets. Or you can hop on the bus rapid transit line and get there as well. Its a huge park with several sections including an ampitheater, gardens, some old buildings, playgrounds... More

Since the world fair was held there over a 100 years ago, nothing new or noteworthy to see

This place was very near our hotel so we decided to check it out. It was very busy. There were shops and foodstands and lots of stuff for kids to do, sort of a mini fairground. We didn't have kids with us so we just kind of wandered through. The art museum is here but it was closed when we... More
