Parque de la Exposicion, Lima

3.7
#9 of 38 in Parks in Lima
Stroll through Parque de la Exposicion, a grand yet peaceful getaway marked with stately historical features. The park houses an old arts museum inaugurated in 1872, as well as Moorish and Byzantine pavillions. The grounds served military purposes during the Pacific War of the 19th century, when injured Peruvian soldiers were treated here and the Chilean army later used the park as a base. The pristine fountains and gardens are complemented by the traditional alfresco restaurants located within the space. Plan a Lima trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Nice but a small park. You can easily Park in Coed groups. It was a risky situation doesn't have time during the day. Due the fact that we don't know the status for our evening.

  • One of several parks of Lima. This, poŕem, has much greater dimensions. There is a beautiful monument at the center point and a beautiful pond. In the lagoon you can feed fish and ducks in order and see them fighting for bran pellets released in the water. Anyway, it's a park to rest and relax. Recommend the visitation at the end of the day, to regain his strength and not be punished by the Sun.

  • I've been here 3 times, Incubus, MGMT, and recently Arcade Fire. For concerts this is a great venue. Not too big, the field is separated into two parts (A is closer while B is the back half). Lately the concerts are on the west side which is all concrete flooring. They used to be on the east side which had grass and a more open environment. I miss the old layout for concerts. Still, the venue is great for a show, and security is pretty relaxed so you can bring in your own items like cigarettes without any problem.
  • The park is a fun place to spend a great evening with friends. There are also attractions for kids.
  • Beautiful, clean and green place to walk for resting. Free access for pedestrians but if you have a car you have to pay for a parking lot almost 5 dollars.
  • It a really interesting place with many monuments, lakes and an a amphitheater in the middle.
  • A good park to explore lots of different areas and activities close to some great museums and galleries
