  • Good Park, well-kept, clean, tidy. Still missing shadow because the trees are small and perhaps missing some more. It would be good to have places for a coffee or buy something to drink.

  • I didn't much like the truth, is quiet and cute, but average fome, walk through the "lagoon" that there goes 5000 pesos and water is really disgusting... I didn't buy because even bad smell, the ads said that, clearly it would not be drinking, but would be clean and not so. Outside the enclosure you can leave the car but there is a man who "cares" and that almost forces you to pay. Them posts of sweets that there are expensive (taking in has the sector where this located) it would recommend for a day of picnic in where not can exit is santiago and that is the only option, carry a quilt and an overflowing with meal my experience was... give a turned, know it and remove me.

  • Park totally recommended to go with children, couple or family. Has a lagoon that fits perfect with the landscape and will generate very beautiful postcards. I was a Saturday lunch and was fairly empty and quiet, ideal for a picnic or sit to read a book. Then about 4 already begins to reach more people. It only bad, is that to the be a park relatively new, the trees still are very small by what there is little shadow.

  • Awesome! Picturesque, great for jogging, biking or just walking. Bring a picnic and some sunscreen! Some places to sit and some grass mixed in along the canal/lake. Note- No BBQ's or alcohol allowed. Open till 6 in the winter, till 9 in Spring/Summer. Take advantage of good on-site bathrooms and recycling on both extremes of the park. Some parking out front as well, but neighborhood not the best for leaving a car unattended. You will not believe the breathtaking views for sunset! :)
  • Great park for running, walking or spending the day with kids.
  • Beautiful park is quite large for the great outdoors

  • Well, I work here, and from that I love the Park is a quiet place and insurance details are missing and more shadow since the trees are small but mediated that time go grow and will be passing a place more pleasant to stroll and spend a Sunday family... Recommended total!
