Jardin del Corazon, La Serena

Stroll the gardens of Jardin del Corazon, a Japanese-themed park dedicated to the twinning of La Serena and the Japanese city of Tenri. Built in 1994 with support from Japanese mining companies in Chile, the garden was designed by architect Akira Ohira. Roam along picturesque cherry trees and koi ponds, passing small bridges and undulating paths, or rest on a bench and watch ducks, swans, and turtles. Don't miss the park's bonsai tree collection.

  • Beautiful garden ideal for relaxing pictures and reflect, does not have many places with shadows. Account with a small garden of Bonsai more inside, you can see wildlife closely.

  • It is a quiet place of recreation. I liked very much, is very nice, were able to take many pictures and enjoy a paradise within the city. You can be walked in an hour and if desired you can stay one little longer to relax.

  • A very picturesque place to walk and breathe nature. It's not very big, we are walking more or less complete in an hour. Clean, quiet. There is a very nice nursery to see several species of bonsai.

  • Me gustó mucho, pero fui a la rapida, así que no pude contemplar, solo mirar.
  • Very peaceful and well-maintained Japanese garden. Worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing (I spent 10-15 minutes there, it's not very big). Skip it if you're not.
  • This is a peaceful place in the middle of an unorganized city of La Serena. It costs only 1000 pesos and it well fits in visit plan, because it doesn't need more than 2 hours. It is well located a couple miles from the ocean and few yards from the center of the city.
  • Beautiful and serene spot amid busy streets.
  • Beatiful place
