Parque John Lennon, Havana

3.3
#4 of 20 in Parks in Havana
Beatles fans won't want to miss Parque John Lennon, where a monument of the iconic musician sits on a bench. John Lennon enjoyed a legacy of adoration from the Cuban public, despite the country's ban on the Beatles during the 1960s and 70s. In 2000, Fidel Castro himself unveiled the monument, sculpted by Cuban artist José Villa Soberón and marking the 20th anniversary of Lennon's assassination in New York City. The inscription underneath cites lines from Lennon's beloved ode to peace, "Imagine," in both English and Spanish.

  • The average Park, which honors the exuberant statue on a bench. On the contrary it has picturesque tumbledown House. An interesting place for a photo shoot (with us there even photoshoot took place).

  • Does not have much to do except be sculpture and the Lord who rises to put the glasses when you get the photos.

  • Fairly large, clean outdoor park with a cool statue of John Lennon. In the middle of a once upscale but deteriorating neighborhood , makes for excellent photos. No outdoor vendors or shopping nearby.
  • Our local guide took us there for a quick stop. Nothing much but a statue of John Lennon. There's nothing around either to visit. Just locals
  • Very active, lots of kids playing. Used by the community. Needs maintenance.
  • Took one of those beautiful old cars here to see John
  • As a Lennon and Beatles fan I couldnt not to visit this place. A week before I was in Strawberry Fields in NYC, saw Dakota building, Imagine mosaic, John's rim glasses (original) in Hard Rock cafe near Yankee Stadium and now ...THIS ! The imagie / likeness of this statue to real J.L. is incredible! Congrats to the artist. (PS. You can see my pics from Hard Rock cafe and Starwb. Fields and Dakota on G Maps here).
