Parque Forestal, Santiago

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Pretty cool but just go to Santa Lucia or San cristobal
  • An alternative to walking through crowded streets, quiet and attractive park with trees and seating that runs alongside the river in a thin strip.
  • At day it's the best place for catch em all. At night not so secure
