Great for walks and rides. Don't stay on the paved trail, it's too close to the highway and there are way to many people walking and riding on it(specially during the weekends). Instead, head into the unpaved trails, this used to be a coffe farm and the trails are were the coffe cutters used to work. These are super cool... More

This park is clean, well guarded during the day, and easy to reach by bike or car. While running in the middle just a few hundred meters from the main road I couldn't even hear the sounds of traffic, and the path is very jungle-like with many areas shaded from the sun. The path goes from groomed dirt to rocky... More

Nice place to spend some weekend time! Especially this park is good if you have your pats, bicycle. There is no any other safe bicycle tracks in San Salvador except this one. And your pat(-s) would love to have a long walk there. But you have to remember to keep them always on the leash and have some poop bags... More

The Bicentennial Park is like a breath of fresh air in the middle of San Salvador. It's easy to reach by car with guarded parking lots, or by taxi, although you should arrange a time for your driver to come back for you (allow 2 hours minimum). There is a small parking fee, but I've forgotten how much. The trails... More

I like to run outdoors and hike and this park is a great place for this and more. My family in El Salvador told me parrots roost in the park at dusk. I wanted to see them up close but most of those tropical birds did a no show. We stayed for a long time but still no parrots. I... More

There is a great little running/biking paved path that goes around the edge of the park. Filled with little ups and downs, twists and turns, it's a good 3K workout, or more, if you want. The trails inside the park are much less solid (muddy) and more isolated.

There aren't many outdoor options in San Salvador itself, so this is a nice place to go for a walk, jog or picnic. Gets really crowded on the weekends, and there is a parking fee, but it is always a safe and nice place to spend some time with family and friends.

Love the shade and safety of this park! I run here on a regular basis and really enjoy it. It's a nice respite from the hot sun and pavement.
