  • Is without a doubt the nicest municipal park in Santa Cruz. Built in 1926 and settled in 2006, is filled with manicured trees, plants and flowers from different countries of the world (for many it is also a sign pointing to the exact species). Beautiful cactus flower beds. A beautiful fountain in the middle of the Park. Around the park there are three cafeterias. Worth a visit during the day with the Sun! Always open.

  • Lovely walk into town centre from the Gran hotel mencey. Very clean park with many tree lined paths for shade. Great for families and places to have a drink. Explore the old city close by with many friendly resteraunts and quaint and quirky themes. Much better City than Barcelona in my opinion and no pick pockets that often crowd big cities.
