Nice enough, best thing about it is the Art Museum located on one side of the park that is very interesting.

Green break where one can enjoy a stroll and meetings on Sundays. Quite a few runners. It is amazing to be in the centre of a city and yet enjoy the wonderful air

La Sabana is beautiful. It is large, green and full of people playing any manner of sport imaginable. Horse and pony rides are available as well as boat rides. Our 7 year old daughter was thrilled to be here and begs to return.

We stopped by the park after a long day of driving and we're excited to see playgrounds in excellent shape - a rare find in most parts of Costa Rica. The park is spacious and clean with so much to do! We only visited the playgrounds, but plan to visit the pond and museum on our next trip.

Really nice park to practice a lot of sports, fresh air. On weekends you can find a lot of people running, skating, playing soccer, football, basketball,baseball even a big mass of people doing aerobics. That's a great place to go with family and take a walk your dog too.
