Nothing of a big deal

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.

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

Looked at all the contributions for places to visit in San Jose. Not a lot of great architecture in the city but this park is well worth a visit either as part of a walking tour or just to chill. It has lovely flowers and trees which we enjoyed. Often things going on around and about the park but check... More

This Park is very close to Parque Morazan and Jardin de Paz. With its mature foliage and flowers as well as decorative fountains and sculptures this park attracts culture lovers for artists displays on the weekends and kissers and huggers at night. Lovely to visit.
