Gorgeous tropical landscaping and water features. We went early Sunday morning and enjoyed the solitude. An easy walk from the centro, and a must do. Also, nearby La Estancia restaurant has great food and view of the park.

This park is fun to walk around! On weekends they sometimes offer a free zipline rice, which is very fun! I would recommend for sure!

I totally enjoyed walking in this park. There also is a "zoo" with some snakes and birds that had been injured and that they are taking care of. It's an oasis in the city

Something for everybody here even though it's not a massive park, everything is free to see or use, from zip lines to watching the turtles or basketball to walking under giant tree ferns.
