4.5
#4 of 30 in Parks in Santiago
Nature / Park
Take a relaxing stroll through Parque Forestal, one of Santiago's best-loved green spaces. The narrow park, designed in a 19th-century style by Jorge Dubois, caters to joggers, picknickers, and any number of soccer-crazy kids. Enjoy the beauty of the tree-lined paths, canopied by green in the spring, and red, brown, and yellow in the fall. Look for the German fountain, palace, and several of Santiago's finest museums, all housed on the grounds. Parque Forestal is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Santiago Edition.

  • A park in the middle of the city, extremely well maintained and in good taste. Worth the walk, primarily by excellent neighborhoods around! You can go walking to the Cerro Santa Lucia!

  • Perfect for a walk, or sit on the benches/grass and get chatting. The Park is very clean and beautiful ... worth the visit.

  • Safe and well wooded, the Forest Park calls attention for your extension and all kinds of mature trees planted along the promenade. Enjoy the visit.

  • 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!
