Parque El Arenal, Santa Cruz

(1/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Locals and tourists alike enjoy the laidback atmosphere at Parque El Arenal, a vibrant public park with a popular lagoon at the heart of the city. Look for the mural by famed Bolivian artist Lorgio Vaca representing his vision of modern day Santa Cruz as well as its history, located on an island in the middle of the lagoon. While the park gives off a friendly vibe during the day, beware of the potential for crime in the area as the day gets darker. Parque El Arenal is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Santa Cruz Edition.

  • Is a park is in full Center of the city very near is the market them grounds, nice place to visit but carefully there is danger of theft around.

  • It is a nice place to stroll, sources give much beauty and there is a small fair of crafts to one side of the Park. You can take advantage to hike out there, before or after shopping in the traditional market of Los Pozos.

  • This park looks okay. But don't expect a green park. There is only concrete. And the surrounding streets are very noisy. Not very fun.
