  • While visiting Santiago we were lucky enough to get to watch a soccer (aka, futbol) game (Chile versus Burkina Faso). We had a large group of Americans and when our friend was buying the tickets he wa...  more »

  • While aging, this is by far the best place to swim & train in Santiago. The outdoor and indoor 50m olympic pools are large and maintained well enough to allow for pushing yourself on sets. The teams & individuals that train here and friendly and focused, which makes it easy be so yourself. The outdoor pool has quite a bit of sand collecting at the bottom of the pool, but the water is otherwise clean. Watch your things, as there is quite a bit of foot traffic and minimal security at the park. There was also only 1 functional shower in the men's locker room. Small complaints, though, after enjoying some great training sessions in the outdoor pool.
  • Very fun place to go, not expensive if you don't buy food or drinks inside. Try to go to a Chile match.
  • Great place for visiting... if you can do it... Looks more beautiful in pictures than in real life.
  • Grounds are showing their age, look somewhat abandoned - but - there's so many sport grounds - basketball, football, grass hockey, bicycle tracks, BMX zone, swimming pool, you name it. Also, stadium is a live memorial for the victims of a concentration camp (stadium was used for those purposes during Pinochet coup.
  • Good game but security is very tight. I'm not sure if that's a positive or a negative.
