This place is great for a Sunday as you need some fresh air at least once a week. it is a bit dangerous at night but during the day it is excellent! Totally recommended!

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

First of all if you ever wanted to travel to a place and do what locals do or see what locals do, look no further, basically they have aerobics classes on the weekends for free dancing to spanish beats and good music, burning calories and having fun, people of all ages come here, kids rollerblading, families walking their dogs, friends...

This is quite a normal park, nothing really special. I wouldn't really make a trip to see it, but it can be a good walk if you happen to be in the area. Loads of squirrels to see.

Just a few blocks from the city is Parque La Sabana which was a great relief from the city centre congestion, huge stadium in one corner attracted hundreds of football fans on the day I visited. Police on bikes everywhere, great to walk around the large lake and watch the swimmers and the very healthy joggers Places to have a... More

Lovely green space in the middle of busy downtown San Jose to stroll and admire the lake and trees. Picnic areas and paddle boats available. Mounted policia on patrol who posed for pictures for me. Most fun was renting a little Palomino for 3K colones ($6) from a man who spoke no English and turned me loose to ride the... More

Super large park right in the middle of the city. Great for people watching. Apartoel La Sabana is real close so it made a great landmark as well.
