  • Interesting park if you are into botanics. An old house in the entrance, 2 panoramic points from where to take pictures and the possibility of hiking in the trails of the arboretum. Nice way to spend....  more »

  • We were looking forward to having a nice walk in a botanical park, this place is just not set up for that. Small uninteresting museum in the pretty home of the late Mr Lussich. Park was disappointing....  more »

  • Worth the stroll, free entrance! For a bus stop you have to walk 2km. Limited information, but good trails and viewpoints. Lots of different trees.
  • Nice natural site. Needs better care
  • Google told me that this arboretum would close at 5:30pm. I left around 6 and it was still opened. Did I say that it is free¿
  • Weekday walk. A nice break from the beach, and it felt like we had the place to ourselves most of the time (apart from an annoyingly loud four wheeler somewhere nearby). Some uphill but nothing challenging.
  • Late Mr Antonio Lussich's estate, a landlord of the area, is now a Great park, ideal for hiking and seeing all sorts of trees and plants. There are a few stations with beautiful sights of lake Laguna del Sauce and Punta. You can ride bikes or take your pets, and even have a picnic in the forest.
