This is a site that is very busy with locals. It is located close to many of the lovely urban architectural highlights of San Jose and has some art dispersed through the site. It would be hard not to.... more »
There is a large Vive San Jose in the center off the park - which is good for photo ops. The park is right next to a large church. more »
Not worth the visit. Nice to see and walk by, but nothing else. We visited in one day seeing San jose. more »
Nice park in San Jose. We went at night. Only had a bit of time for a photo. It looked clean. Lots of people since it was after work and everyone was commuting from their jobs. Lots of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Park is near food, retail shops, museums and churches.
Very nice, small City Park. You hear the parrots in the trees, see the red squirrels. Go inside the beautiful church. Very safe and clean. Locals are very nice people.
Giant open space, lots of street performers. Cool spot to sit down and people watch. Close to some decent bars and restaurants and close to the promenade.
Nice pair in the center of La Fortuna. The taxi central is right by the park.
Love it for real but don't go at night
