Good spot to chill and watch the local scene

A great spot for people watching. Be quick to get a seat in the shade ! A little quieter than the main square which can be a nice change .

I guess this is the only place you can sit down on the grass and read a book in the center of Sucre. Nice place, many people, close to a park for children with many attractions.

The park is very pretty but you cannot step on the grass you can only stay on the path they have some very very old trees that are very tall and that their base it's very very thick pretty sight if you'd like to walk in a park in the afternoon there's nice lightning hitting it

The park itself is not that special. But there is a lot you do and see there. People playing music, children playing, activities, and so on. So it is a fun place to hang around!

We didn't see any other tourists here when we visited. There were lots of locals - teenagers practicing dance routines, older people sitting on benches, schoolkids hanging around after class, etc so it's a good way to observe local life and it's nice for a stroll though. There's a kids section and some pedalo swans that look like they've not... More

The park is small, there is a lot of rubbish (10/12/16) and you cant touch the grass. What is better in a park then just laying a blanket down and lay in the grass. Most tourists we saw today seemed to have the same feeling: why did we go here?

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.
