  • Parts are nice but many homeless on benches. Nice area for bicycling and walks. Great route to get to downtown. South to North leads to central market.  more »
  • Forest Park is located in the centre of San Diego, it's a long, large public park with lots of trees in it, and it feels like it's in the woods. There are many statues in it, as well as a children's game area, which is a good place for the whole family.

  • I was lucky to go through there one Sunday afternoon and surprise me with the influx of visitors and the respect with which people attending the Park. A musician at the top of the same executed the violin for more than one hour and a half; his music was heard in almost all of the space and at the same time each took care of their issues without disturbing the peace of the place; something that is not very common in argentina. The Park was clean and care.

  • It's one of the best places to take a walk, alone or with famity. I can feel the calm of the nature in such a big city. Take a rest and watch the birds in a clean and cozy park.
  • Lovely way to walk, jog, hike or enjoy a stroll through the beautiful park and scenery!
  • Great place to get around lots of people making out and smoking weed
  • Perfect place for clean air in the city during winter time
  • I really like the parks in Santiago, and this one is no different. You can often find lovers, families and friendly street puppies here. Also great for those city runners!
