This is a thriving park in the center of the city. The game that resembles volleyball is played and surprisingly high-stakes card games that I didn't understand are played too. Buy a good meat skewer, sit, and watch the city go.

It is better to go to the center of the city, you will find more of the cultural background and more cool things.

Large green space with lots of people, vendors with artwork and food. Easy access to public transport and a nice way to get from Mariscal to Old Town if you're walking.

A lovely park with many fine old trees but also a lively crafts market on the outskirts of the Mariscal. Well worth a pause from city life to enjoy the trees and to stroll and to take in the shopping from native vendors. Nice.

Nice walk. We did not spend a lot of time but it was a convenient way to get from the downtown area to the La Mariscal - Plaza Foch area.

Just loved this place. Kids, parents, old men, young people, buskers and huskers and candle-stick makers. Paths and fountains and no plastic slides. A rock band across the street and a life and death volleyball game. Maybe better then "excellent".
