  • We've been in this park on 8 December, so the Park was very busy. But it's spacious location, abundant in shadows of trees and we were able to have a picnic. There are also playgrounds well assembled and is very clean, except for the large amount of dogs that roam there, as throughout the city. In addition to these many pigeons, which are fed by park users. Apparently the Chileans don't know the risk to health that these birds represent, as there are a lot of people feeding the pigeons in the city. Many children playing, strolling families, couples dating, and many, many domestic dogs that run loose all over the place. The resounding note was a walking group that arrived in the late afternoon, entered the square with a car and began setting up tents, taking ownership of part of the space. Another is the large amount of marijuana, which is released in Chile, but which cause odour problem in a public place.

  • beautiful water fountains, plenty of room for biking, playing with children and pets, but above all much, much green can be found here. cute and well kept (so far), the place is ideal for hot summer evenings in the capital

  • Santiago is a city very green and very sporty. This beautiful park is in the Center (and is not the only one), and allows for short walks and stops, even in the grass. they can return tranquillity on hot (daytime) spring days.

  • 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.
