I love the vibe of this park. Lots of trees, people bring their dogs, many park benches, food stands. On Sundays it's packed but still a relaxing environment.

Parque Bolivar is 800m towards the Northwest from Plaza de 25 Mayo. It is not very big (circumference less than 1 km), but more or less level and thus ideal for jogging. Locals do it usually early evening. While joining them I made quite a few new friends. Sometimes the local fanfare rehearses at the park and many people come... More

A local park with food stalls, various blow up bouncy activities, 2 cars, one towing a shabby sheet metal plane and the other towing a sheet metal train engine and caboose, an area where kids can paint a colouring book picture of their choice and so on. A park of kitchy activities that kids enjoy.

This well-maintained park is close to the centre and great for a short stroll. On a warm day it's great to sit on one of the many benches and relax/read for a bit.

Only several blocks, 5 to 10 min walk form Plaza 25 de Mayo is this nice little park. Great for a stroll or just to sit and watch the people go by.

The park is pleasant. The small Eiffel town is great but scary when the country doesn't have health and safety. The play park next door is a MUST if you have children while in Sucre.

If you go during carnival, or in the weeks leading up to carnviale, be prepared to get wet! It's a tradition to throw water balloons, spray you with water guns, and even dump buckets of water... And if you're a gringo? You're an especially good target! It's all in good fun, until/unless it's not, and if you don't want to... More

Simon Bolivar Park has always been one of my favorite places to go for a walk in Sucre. It's near downtown. And is an easy place to walk doing laps around the park (at 2.600 meters altitude I don't run). However, this time a couple of dogs lose in the park threatened me. They didn't seem to want to bother... More

It is a nice park with its own small version of the Eiffel Tower. It is walking distance from Plaza 25 de Mayo. The gorgeous tall trees make the difference. It is fresh in a hot day. There is an artificial lake but we didn't find the box office to rent a boat.
