  • Renato Poblete River Park is relatively new. It has artificial lakes that for those wishing to sail can do it in a few pedal boats and travel from another view a park with lots of vegetation and of different types from many up to Cactus flowers and long grass to enjoy the afternoon. It also offers a view of the Mapocho River and connects to the Park of the Kings. There is also industry is recycling, baths and in the summer a few pools to cool off. A quiet and pleasant walk.

  • 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!
