It's a big park aimed for everyone. Loads of places for kids to play on and rides to go on. There is a replica of Eiffel Tower in the park ( there is a saying ) so people don't have to travel to Paris to see it. Lots of eating stalls. You could spend hours there.

Now that the park has been redone, it's actually a nice place to bring the kids. They've got a dinosaur theme going and our daughters love it. The huge Dino slide is for sure the main feature. Leave that part of the park and you've got all sorts of paved paths you can walk on. Some nights you can catch... More

You have to visit this for curiosity value. The couple who founded it had a passion for Paris and the man created this for his wife as a reminder so it has so-called replicas of various Parisian landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, River Seine and Arc de Triomphe.

Nice place to walk around and see some open space in the city. This area is popular with families and students and locals out for a walk.

Pretty park, be prepared to see lovers hanging out by the park at all hours of the day. Go on a weekend to see the park in full action! Lots of (wayyyy too many) bouncy castles (about 10 on my last count), bull rides and little cars and vehicles for the kids to ride. There are usually lots of (unhealthy)... More

Nice place to have a walk and see a bit of the daily life. The "eiffel tower" is a bit scary but you can have a nice view from the top. Pleasant place to go.

Nice way for kids to run off their energy. Has a huge dinosaur slide and other activities for children, e.g., horseback rides, and ATV rides.

There is a small ice cream kiosk in the top corner of the park and this is a great place sit with and ice cream and watch the world go by for a while.

It's an OK park. There's a few food stalls, some table football machines to hire and the famous model of the Paris Tower for the kids to climb up. And that's about it. The municipal planting is fine but there's not man plants or gardens to enjoy.

Simon Bolivar park during the day is nice, but what really made it for me was the light show on Saturday night. Went with a few people from my hostel and it was a great time watching the fountain (at the bottom of the park) glow along with music to match it. Starts at 7:30 PM and it´s free!
