I recommend visiting this place, is so peaceful and meaningful. The entrance was 1.5 dollars and totally worth it. If you like to take photos, there's a lot of great spots for outdoors pictures. They have many ducks walking freerly around the garden. Also they have a room with bonsai trees, really adorable.

The Japanese garden is a nice activity if you have a free hour and nothing else to do, but expect nothing extraordinary. The price is 1000 Chilean Pesos, which is okay. At the end, we felt a little underwhelmed as the details of the park seemed a little too rough to be a good imitation of a Japanese garden. Conclusion:... More

I just loved this place! I could have spend my whole day here. Cured till the smallest details, this breathes pure beauty. Absolutely worth the 1000 pesos. You will find water, bridges, gardens in the garden, birds, fishes, turtles, bonsai' sand more bonsai exquisite Tip: visit the garden in the afternoon, more chance of sun

This small Japanese Garden is nice and well kept. It is not very big and you should not plan to spend more than 30 minuttes in it. It is a traditional Japanese garden with small bridges, bonzai trees, gates etc. It is everything you would expect of a park like this, so if you enjoy Japanese Gardens this might be... More

Our 3rd visit in 4 years and hope it's not the last. When you can find such a tranquil and beautiful Garden in what is primarily a touristic Beach Town, it gives you an additional reason to want to return. One does not have to have a vegetable and/or floral garden to appreciate this specific space. The Garden is a... More

Very peaceful and well-maintained Japanese garden. Worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing (I spent 10-15 minutes there, it's not very big). Skip it if you're not.

Nice little garden with paths, small waterfall, birds, turtles and fish. Nothing amazing but fair entrance fee. Nice to take a picnic on a sunny day.

Peaceful place for walking and observing animals guarded in this park. Fishes, swans, ducks and a few more live peacefully within the park and its small lake. Japanese culture is present on every light, bridge, sign and bonsais in the garden center. Perfect for a couple of hours of shooting photos and escaping away from cars and people.

This is a nicely maintained Japanese style garden just a few blocks from Plaza de Armas. It's peaceful, tranquil, and nicely kept. If you are into this kind of thing, it's worth your time. Personally, I would not make it a priority on a visit. We liked it, but it was not a very important part of our visit to... More

This is a nice place to get away from the city and relax for a couple hours and have a lunch. The park is a typical Japanese park with a nice red bridge. The trees and plants are native to Japan. The park is very well maintained. There are some koi fish in the pond and some ducks, swans and... More
