This is one of Santo Domingo's jewels!
Parking is free. Admission to the park is nominal (currently RD$100 pp for foreigners), and well worth it.
The park is very large. In the >20 times I've visited, it has never been crowded.
As other reviewers have noted, the Japanese garden is particularly impressive. Signs ask that visitors limit their stay in this part of the park to no more than 15 minutes, but - like most other regulations in the Dominican Republic - this rule is unenforced and generally ignored. The pond has lots of friendly turtles: try to remember to bring some bread crumbs for them!
Motorized trains run periodically through the park, but I prefer to walk. Completing the circumference will take approximately 60-90 minutes, and is mostly (about 2/3) in shade.
