    Nice Park, but little spectacular. For a short break from the walkway but always sufficient enough.

    It is a park that is located in the Centre of the city. It has large and leafy trees. It has spaces for walking, but they are already old and they do not have good maintenance.

    A small park with many sculptures of figures and a beautiful fountain in the middle. On hot days a shady spot.

    It's a nice place, time to time the city's Major does some cultural activities there.

    Iconic small park in the middle of San Jose. It fills with arts on weekends.

    A very nice Park, missing police officers but it is a good place to hang out. You can encounter young consuming marijuana.
