Spires shooting up into the air. Bamboo islands intermixed. Really a cool way to abut modern art with rustic nature.

Stop by during the day and this little park is alive with both locals and tourists. The old buildings that used to be official buildings now house a great old pub and some official buildings still. Come back at night....but be safe..have a taxi guy...More

A really nice place to hang out and relax on a nice day. There are cart vendors selling coffe and snacks. It's a very relaxing area to sit and read a book or have a snack. The bamboo swaying sounds so nice and relaxing specially...More

This park is stunning. Renovated buildings surround it and the fact that they have 365 lighted poles for each day of hope all year long is just an amazing statement to the class this city has developed.

While this place makes for some fantastic pics, it´s a shame that it´s not always on to see all it´s glory. At night the area can be a bit hasty, so be careful!!!

We were able to see Parque de las Luz during the day while on a fantastic "Real City Tours" with an excellent Host, Mari. Then later we spotted the lights and enjoyed the warm glow.

We went during the day and as such did not get the benefit of the light show. The park apparently has 300 columns that’s light up after dark into a neat light show. In the pouring rain and in daylight - it is just average!
