It's a park.

Not much to say about it. It's a nice clean park, Good place to sit and people watch. That's about it.

By no means largevtbis park us a bit of a breather among the excitement of San Jose and its entertaining people and events.

The park itself is small and perhaps more interesting if you go late in the afternoon to bird watch. We were there late morning. It is bordered by Casa Amarilla - which you can not visit and the Music/Dance Conservatory - which you can not visit although they did allow us to use their restrooms. Parque Metropolitan is much more... More

Nice, but nothing that you can't miss. The square has a lot of bad graffiti, but the architecture is interesting and beautiful.

This is a nice semi-large park in the middle of the city packed with trees and benches for you to sit. It is a great place to stop by on the way to other attractions. The museums and historic San Jose is all nearby.

A nice small park with lots of trees packed in this small square. The dome, gardens and people there make up the city's vibe. Good for a short stop in between the key San Jose attractions.

This is one special park. The area is beautiful. The museum is near by so we took a walk there. I enjoyed my time here.

Nice smallish park with 2 fountains and tall trees, good to take a break. Tragic all around it so not really serene

What makes San José vibrant and beautiful is the diverse presence of parks in some of its most popular areas. Parque España crowns with high trees and secret trails one of my favorite spots in downtown San José. It's a great place to go for a walk, very intimate and full of flowers and varied vegetation makes it somehow a... More
