  • Park of great proportions, with trees and lawns for rest of the regulars. It also has large open space and paved for big events: the Pope was there. It has a gym and a theme park.

  • Is a large park and full of people. I went on a weekend and it was packed, I didn't stay too long because the Park gave me a sense of security. Preferably to the Cerro Santa Lucia and San Cristóban Hill.
