We visited this park while in Holguin last week. You will find a nice place for locals and their kids and tourists to relax and enjoy the ambiance of the area. It's a safe place to hang around and have fun. There's food and drinks nearby too if you're looking for that as well.

We visited this park in March 2012 during our trip to Cuba. Worth a visit if you're in Holguin. We spent a few hours here chilling in the sun with a nice cold cerveza. It's a lovely place.

I will say that this is the best park of the Holguin City...The city is known as the Park's city...because there is a park ever two blocks.. But this one is kind of all white and is the only one that has the boulevard in one side.. you must visit...

Calixto Garcia Park, the central park of Holguin province, is one of the largest in Cuba, you can sit there and enjoy the gentle breeze and also see a whole city passing in front of you. From that point you can decide if you go to the "House of Trova" or "House of Music"

Parque Calixto Garcia is the busiest park in Holguin. It is surrounded by half a dozen bars and restaurants, the Casa de la Musica, a disco, a jazz club, and Casa de la Trova, the newly renovated Teatro Eddy Suñol, a couple of national peso department stores and 2 or 3 CUC stores, the Museo Provincial de Historia, the library,...

This could be a beautiful and relaxing place, however with in moments of getting out of the taxi we (myself, my wife and our 6yr old daughter) were swamped with beggars want money. Don't encourage them by giving them any. We did not feel safe and could feel everyone's eyes glaring at us. Little to nothing to buy.
