Parque El Arenal, Santa Cruz

1.0
#11 of 11 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.

    A beautiful space with a pond and a great mural of Lorgio Vaca. However, many "walkers" are not anything recommended. Close to the nochecer.
