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.

  • It is a beautiful park where you can stroll and relax. Ideal on a sunny day, relaxes me much. There are no major attractions, but if many details that give peace.

  • When you enter a comforting aura feels, the quietness and the sound of the water you connect with nature and your inner peace. Stop forced.

  • Beautiful place to take a break and enjoy a super quiet and nice environment (as long as there are no large concentrations of people). It is well maintained and has beautiful waterfalls and places where they see quiet calm that inspires the place. Not suitable for people who like walking to the rush. The cost of entry is quite accessible.

  • 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.
  • Small peaceful garden... But your not allowed to sit or lay in the grass
  • The entrance is worth $1000 pesos USD$ 1.5, is a place that has many green area, different animals (those who do not can feed) as ducks, geese, swans and koi fish. It is a must-see place for families.
