Parque Centenario, Guayaquil

3.6
#8 of 11 in Outdoors in Guayaquil
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It was a nice park. Funny to find lots of elderly men just chilling, and reading their newspapers. Will love to visit again, and watch the city buzzing in the daytime
  • The park's doors are often closed, especially if there is a demonstration. So you may have to see the place from outside.
