  • This beautiful park is located in O'Higgins Park station of subway. So it is easily accessible for those who are in Santiago and wants a more natural program. He is huge and resembles a little the Quinta da Boa Vista in Rio de Janeiro in terms of size. Became one of my favorites, at the end of the day you find a battalion of people walking back, remembering to post Carnival on AV. Presidente Vargas, in the Centre of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The side has the Fantasilândia amusement park that guarantees a good entertainment all day. Highly recommended.

  • We went to the subway and came down at the station following the O'Higgins Park station, the Park is well maintained and has locations including BBQ and seems to have many Chileans and few tourists. To our surprise, we found a municipal swimming pool with the cost of access to 4,000 pesos. We went in and it was a wonderful evening for our last day in the summer of Santiago. Recommend! Caveat: the paddle boat restaurant, poolside, is very bad and very dirty! Watch out!

  • I was on the day of the lollapalooza so don't have much like having a more concrete opinion, the Park on the day I went was very well taken care of, and has the positive point of having a subway station near.

  • Master ohiggins Park. While at night it is closed, it's wonderful day. It is very spacious and has an area to ride a boat. In addition to that on the main Court of the ohhigins Park, our armed forces parade all the 19 September.
