I'd recommend not bothering even getting out of the car for this. Drive by and take a picture if you feel the need. If you do not happen to be in this area then skip the Flower Clock. Boring!

Is it really supposed to be an attraction? It's a clock! very poor during my visit (it was winter, maybe the flowers were impacted by cold weather)

This is a place where you must spend no more than 15 minutes taking pictures, lots of tourists lining up for the pics and nice thing to do, very clean and relaxing surroundings and about 30 meters from this clock, there's a pay phone from the 1970's also to take pictures at., recommeneded.

The Flower Clock is in my opinion mostly a tourist attraction for the more senior citizens visiting beautiful Vina del Mar. Stop by if the Clock is en route, but I wouldn't put in the extra effort to see the Flower Clock.

Close walk from the Sheraton. Mainly just the clock. Not in a park but quite pretty. Make sure you stand back to take photos as there is a world globe with Australia on the front.

Although the title of this review is about the awesome Vina Del Mar floral clock, I would like to talk about the city itself. Having been to 26 different countries and PR, this place ranks in my top 3 favorite trips. Many call this city the Beverly Hills of Chile because many rich people live here and you immediately notice... More

Nicely landscaped area in Vina del Mar. Clock is put together beautifully and it even has a second hand. Biggest surprise is that it chimes every 15 minutes. Stop and take a look and you will not be disappointed.

This is one of my mom's favorites. Every time we went to Viña, we would go see the clock made of flowers. I don't live in Chile anymore and I gotta say, it is my favorite too. It is a very pretty clock that works. You probably don't need to go there every time like us, but if is your... More

Only go if you want the picture. There's not much else within walking distance and the clock really isn't that impressive.
