Initial curbside appeal is pretty poor. I suspect that this extravagant park may have been created when the miners were settled here by Allende, decades ago. Keeping up infrastructure is tough and they have not... most of the picnic tables gone, some burned , lots of scruffy areas...like a lot of urban parks in Chile. A few good green areas. However, they are trying to improve it by planting some new shrubs, tidying up the lawns etc. We spent a few hours there (picnicing then going for an extended walk on the boulevard LB O'Higgins) while awaiting a night flight out from Santiago. Certainly the best park in town. Clean and tidy but very basic. No toilets but that's standard.
I wish them well with the reconstruction. Finding money and political will for maintaining is always tougher than building!More
