  • A great place to stroll through nature, with children and adults, make rides bike, picnic and visit the beautiful museum that is located in the vicinity

  • It is a good place for hiking, picnicking or just go to the beach and nearby rocks. I think the Museum is a gem and nothing to say, what did Pedro de el Rio Zañartu was amazing and worth admiring, but lack advertising or promotion. They should take better care here, an earthquake can facilities to sedan and the house collapses. but in general if it is worth to go. Need a tour guide for the place

  • The Park is well sign-posted, as first point you go by car to the mouth of the Bío-Bío River, a beach and an edge River where people can bathe. Placed some cars with food selling beach items... in general the landscape is typical seaside, possesses a small hill to climb and have a better image to the city of Concepción. The next stop was at the Museum, a House colonial antigua, which includes many items collected by Pedro de el Río on their travels around the world, far and what more surprises and therefore recommend the visit is an Egyptian Mummy real (didn't expect me them), the rest are animals and objects of cultures grouped by countries... is good to know it I recommend it. Beside the Museum there are gardens called mazes, which lead to some viewpoints towards conception...

  • Home and museum of Senor Zanartu. World traveler and collector-- amazing amount of collection from all over and hence a look at the world around 1880... before all the good souvenirs had been scooped up. Some intriguing pieces. Apparently had a lot of time and money. He built, we're told, the house, garden and the elaborate labyrinth around the base of the hill-now sadly neglected--but suggestions of wealth are the big chopped down trees, view of his property, extensive garden layout. (Mostly untended now) and the spacious layout. Gardeners should not see this. Not to be obsessive but it begs for restoration. No using your iPhone for fear of photos. Some labels can't be translated as a result. Guide attaches herself at entrance - only Spanish. Tip expected.
  • Mr Pedro Del Rio kept a beautiful collection of interesting pieces brought from his four trips all around the world, it worth a visit
  • The place is a bit "terremoteado" since it still preserves in its structure the ravages caused by the earthquake. The place is constantly being neat but conservation of the relics is not optimal. There are bathrooms which are clean... The place could be improved

  • The toll charged for entering the Park is illegal. The owner of the venue that precedes the sea or river is obliged to allow free access. They went up 50% access 2017, from 2000 to $3000 and the road is horribly bad.

  • It is a heritage and a significant part of the history of Hualpén
