Located in the center next to all the terraces, this is a nice park to relax and enjoy the shade or a drink at night

Its a park surrounded by very nice redtaurants and bars, but the park itself is dirty and chaotic. Its worth the visit if you are going to some place around.

This park is surrounded by restaurants, bars and enjoyable stops, In the evenings and thru the afternoons too, you can sit on the patios and watch people, enjoy a cold or hot beverage, or a bite to eat. Really a beautiful park!
