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.

  • I am basing my opinion of the park on one particular experience so don't take it too seriously. A gipsy stole money from me. It all started with me giving her some coins because I felt bad for her daughter and it ended up with two women taking @30000 pesos from me. Be careful. My lesson was expensive. However I tried to look for a police officer to report it but there wasn't any around.
  • Cool park following the mapuche river with lot of benches and games for the kids. I used to run there though it can be very polluted when people come from work
  • Its super great enviroment. Great service. Good rooms very clean. And the monday teremotos a great drink( tradicional chilen drink that consist of a very low class wine pepeña pine apple ice cream a strawberry sugari syrup that combined very refreshing drink) the only negative side is the french conserje invited a friend over i guess to drink and i caught him looking in to my room a peping tom. The curtens should be darker but just that i could hear him say comment( yo look at this dude in his room is very disturbing) this is some thing that needs to be looked at). But every thing else a 100% in service. I love this hostel been here 2 times and no doubt a must and very affordable. Always will come back.
  • Beautiful park commemorating 100 years of Spanish Independence. There are a couple of gifts given for the celebration by 3 countries. The Americans gave a head of Lincoln. The biggest and best is a huge monument from the Germans depicting their arrival on a boat. There is also one from Italy. Lots of big trees and places to sit and relax.
  • Large park perfect for walking or riding the bike path. Enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
