The 72 ha (177 acre) park is known as the home of the country's national soccer stadium, as well as many other sports facilities, including running and skating tracks, and soccer fields. Formerly the site of the country's main airport, the terminal building still stands, although it has now been converted into the national art gallery.

  • Nice park, with a lake. Bring some food and drinks and have a picnic here. Soccer games, bird watchers, runners, and people just enjoying the day. There are no restaurants, only some vendors selling shaved ice, fruits, chips, sodas. La Pura Vida!
