The large park in the center of the business district is one of the most popular outdoor areas of the city for visitors of all ages. Inside the park you can find a great selection of amenities and things to do, from visiting the botanical garden and the vivarium that houses reptiles and amphibians to seeing the cross placed in the spot where Pope John Paul II held a mass in 1985.
