Parque El Arenal, Santa Cruz

1.9
#9 of 12 in Parks in Santa Cruz
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.

  • This Park is very busy only on Sundays and with family. Be careful on the other days. Muggings and bag robbery as well as the order of the day! All around there are many street shops but also because caution many stolen items are sold!

  • The Park is in the center of the city, but has great attractions, only a lagoon without much grace. The only rest accompanies the lagoon. When we went it was very hot and there were few places of shadow
