  • Nice, spacious and pleasant to make family trip, rest, exercise, riding a bicycle, etc. Park quality urban and landscape with good equipment. Unique details: there is changing in the bathrooms and there are no many spaces with shade. Picnics are apparently not what is good because it helps to maintain cleanliness.
