Parque John Lennon, Havana

3.4
#4 of 14 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.

    In the District of Vedado, you can meet John Lennon sitting on a bench. The bench is frequented by tourists who take pictures with John Lennon.

    Parque Lennon is probably a little overdone. Apart from a statue of John Lennon with real glasses on his nose there's not much to see unless you're a hard nosed tourist .

    The statue of Lennon is great, but it was so refreshing to see kids playing in the park and having a great time. It's hard not to smile when you're here because everyone is having a great day.

    The statue of John Lennon is handsome and the place is pleasant. Distant distance from the city center
