Take your children, take your grandparents, take a friend...just go. It's a large park that has a beautiful lake in the middle where you can rent paddle boats or simply sit on the bank and picnic a while.

Lots going on in this park. Walk in or you might miss it. We rented the paddle boats on the lake. Very basic boats but fun. Bring a ball and join the fun.

We spent a month in San Jose over Christmas and one of our first visits was to Sabana Park. We walk through the park and around the 'lake'. I was quite surprised at the condition and look of the park. It seemed really unkempt - lots of trash in the water (on the west side of the 'dam') - grass... More

Gorgeous tropical flowers and close to La Sabana Apartotel! We walked from our hotel to the restaurant and park. There was also a lovely church and a Jewish menorah in the park.

Safe and quiet. Beautiful park with a marked walking path. Has a nice pond. The national soccer stadium occupies one side and could get crowded
