    We visited family just as it celebrated the independence of Peru, so we had music and Peruvian cuisine. A lot of people, very few tables and chairs to sit and eat, but a very beautiful place to visit on a sunny day

    Parque Quinta Normal is very old, and has areas that are very careless. However, is all a discovery because inside they have interesting sites: the Natural History Museum and the Railway Museum. And although they are not formally within the Park, it also includes the Artequin Museum which is very beautiful, the Basilica of Lourdes and the Museum of solidarity. An incredible full tour.

    Nice park with small lake. There is train park that is very good and is not much to go in. The museum is free and very interesting.

    Beautiful park with lots of room for running, playing soccer or just lay under a tree. It has some cool museums inside the premises and a subway station. Over all is a great park for a fun Saturday or Sunday afternoon to have a picnic and just relax and breath some fresh air.
