  • Had gone a couple of times during days of week and after a year I went a day Sunday. Big surprise the dirty and the place flaite. Pools of dirty water with children bathing. Adults drinking beer and shouting wildly at the children, apart from street vendors selling beer everywhere. Bad grass, water, the coffee shop where they sell only junk food (drinks, complete, etc) street vendors in excess selling trinkets, etc. The only good thing are the museums which are at a good level and quite educational.

  • Park ideal for family tour. Museums, Park, activities...
