Parque Forestal, Santiago

(4.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The best time to visit the Park is in the fall, since the contrast of colors in the leaves of the trees is wonderful, excellent for out to photograph the place, to share with friends or family with a picnic in the park or simply out with children to capture Pokemon.

  • The park is kept nicely. During the day is very safe, there's a lot of people walking (and catching pokemon), and at noon there's poeple from nearby offices having lunch in the grass. I wouldn't recommend to go during the night
  • This is a very important urban park and the most visited in Santiago. It is located next to the Mapocho river and it has the Bellas Artes Museum as a part of it. Great place to exercise, take a walk and relax.
  • 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
  • A quiet park in the middle of the city. You can safely walk here while enjoying the old architecture of the nearby buildings.
