“Nice for quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Another place to see. I stayed in a hotel close to it. There were many sculptures at the time. Just another piece of San Jose.

“A Lively Park, Lots to See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We stubbled across this little park and just had to stop and take some pictures and take in everything that was going on around us. There are latterly thousands of birds just chirping away, hit seems so surreal. There are hundreds of people all arounds, some younger people were juggling. This is definitely something that you would want to fit into your visit to San Jose< CR.

“Nice Park, Too Much Traffic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Nice structure in the center, but there is too much traffic constantly driving around to really be able to enjoy what was once a highlight of the city.

“Beautiful little park in the middle of a busy city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is a great park to sit and people watch. Safe and well patrolled. Nice things to look at and a great place to sit back and relax for a bit.
