    Beautiful park to go with the polola or friends, take a walk, bike ride or simply to take a breath, there is near metro and sell much food on the street, also there is Fantasyland, a beautiful place with many stories...

    Even under a steady rain and cold wind, the Park is beautiful, clean and well maintained. I believe that should be a delightful place to spend a few hours

    Great for a picnic and walk in the shade of the trees. Practically in front has a building that looks like a castle (Army). The Park is adjacent to an amusement park is free and relies on security at loca.
