  • I spent an entire afternoon in the Park watching all the perfect sculptures go back there sometimes, another Park/Plaza wonderful set of Santiago.

  • There are sculptures with materials extracted from quarries or mines of Chile within the bicentennial Park, donated by companies with Chilean artists. There are copper, aluminium, iron, etc. Very nice shapes and colors. It is worth passing.

  • Bordering the Mapocho River, about 30 Chilean artists sculpture adorn the Park. Nice place to take a tour on foot or by bicycle and discover works, do a gymnastics, a picnic or just rest.

  • A pleasant family friendly outdoor sculpture garden (with an indoor component). Many sculptures are interactive. My only complaint is I wish it was a bit larger.
  • Very nice park to sit in on a sunny day or wander around the sculptures. Does close overnight, but open until the evening. Fairly small, so the shaded spots are taken early on busier days. There are maybe 15 sculptures in total, not worth a special trip but nice if passing.
  • Excelente lugar para irse a relajar dentro de la ajetreada ciudad, esculturas de calidad y cada cierto tiempo, generalmente a finales de año se pueden apreciar competiciones de talentosos como Osvaldo Peña entre otros
  • The park's entry is free. It has a lot of interesting sculptures in every 5 to 10 meters of distance. Each sculpture has an explaination and is made by a different artist. Good place to relax and for a small picnic.
