Parque El Olivar, Lima

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Admire the olive grove and the avian life at Parque El Olivar, a lush oasis in the heart of Lima. The park contains over 1,500 olive trees that still bear fruit, some of them dating from 1560 when Antonio de Rivera brought the first olives from Seville. Reserve a guided tour to learn about the history of the grove, or just take a relaxing walk among the trees and ponds. In addition to its picnic and exercise space, the park is also a haven for birdwatchers. You can spot over thirty species here--plaques distributed around the grounds display information and pictures of the birds. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Parque El Olivar and many more Lima attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Lima trip itinerary maker.

  • Very well maintained park in the heart of San Isidro. One of the most beautiful urban parks I've visited, with hundreds of olive trees.

  • The parque olivar is an oasis from the busy, traffic-filled city. The 400+ year old olive trees provide plenty of shade around the meandering paths. This is definitely a lovely spot in San Isidro.  more »

  • A park located in the so-called forest El Olivar, although in essence would be the same. The Park is very quiet and safe. Good place to rest or relax under the trees. Does not offer many attractions to the public rather than a man-made lagoon.
