  • Sucre in the middle of the Park is slightly off. The scale is small, and you've got a pretty good feel with locals or travelers an orderly place where you can find it all. One side of the line can be eaten simply food stand is lined with similar things. Anticucho, hotdogs, etc.

  • Fine park to spend a sunny afternoon on a bench with a drink and a salteña purchased on the street. Not very special, but not bad either.

  • A relax and popular place for locals. There are some food stalls selling delicious snacks.
  • I love the vibe of this park. Lots of trees, people bring their dogs, many park benches, food stands. On Sundays it's packed but still a relaxing environment.
  • Really nice place enjoyed by locals and tourists
  • Big park but lacking of ornaments. Not much to see and to do. Several benches to seat. The grass is not that furnished. Replica of the Eiffel Tower is not that great and a bit unsafe.
  • In the middle of an otherwise hectic city, Parque Bolivar is a nice place to rest and re-focus. Throughout the park are large, mature trees and numerous benches. Manicured lawns and flowering plants are all well cared for, and the park is kept relatively clean. It is extensive (no, not like NYC Central Park) with various sections. The SE end has vendors selling snacks and trinkets, and in the evenings it is a popular jogging/walking spot. On the weekends there are activities for children here. In the middle is a lookout tower referred to as the "Torre Eiffel", although tiny compared to it's french namesake. At the NW end is a lovely circular garden with trestles and benches, focused on a large fountain. The fountain is only turned on at certain times, and not every day. But when it is on, it is quite beautiful and accompanied by music. The park is located right next to the children's park (Parque Infantíl) and is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk from the central market (Mercado Central) and the main plaza (Plaza 25 de mayo). This park is a must see for a visitor to Sucre, and should be a habitual stop for locals.
