La Sabana is a good place for exercising, just in the middle of San Jose downtown. It is very safe since there are policemen all around in horses all the time, people go there to run, skate, walk, picnic, play soccer, baseball, play with kites,etc.

A free place for exercising, visiting the art museum, concerts at the national stadium or simply for a picnic.

Cool place to jog or walk on grass. Night time is the time to stay away. The park has a lake but I'm not sure but I don't think fishing is permitted.
