Visit Parque Centenario, a green space full of plants, flowers, pathways, and park benches. At 20 hectares (49 acres), it ranks among the biggest parks in the city. Its inauguration in 1920 marked the centenary of Guayaquil's independence. Look for the statue commemorating the founding fathers, which pays tribute to the heroes who liberated the city on October 9, 1820.

  • Beautiful park with green areas, ideal to take a break in the shadewhile you walk around.
  • Nice plaza park. Fenced in with only one entrance open. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the day and the shade. Vendors ring the park and will sell you water,etc.
  • Beautiful park. Ik didn't like the atmosphere that much. Seems to be a meeting place for men.
  • Great memories and history there, good for chill and see life goes by
  • It's partially closed. It has only one gate and exit for the same road and around this park there's prostitution and some thieves.
