This is a relatively nondescript square in the centre of Vedado, now famous for the bronze image of John Lennon sitting on one of the iron benches – you can sit next to him for a photograph, but there is no sign of the national health-type spectacles that used to sit on his nose – they were regularly removed by souvenir hunters! It’s a bit of a way out of the centre, but if you’re on a classic car ride the driver will probably pass by the square, so you can ask him to pull up for a moment.

This is very cool and I encourage you check it out if you are in the area. There are other similar ones throughout the squares in Havana and they are very neat! Real or Statue that is the question...

Parks in Havana are named after notable people and John Lennon Park is smallish neighbourhood park where there is a life-size bronze statue of Lennon seated on a park bench. Naturally it's a popular photo stop. We came here on one of the three hour classic car tours.

Fidel Castro did not like the Beatles, in fact he banned the music. But when John Lennon went solo, did his actions for peace in the world and wrote the song Imagine, Fidel found in him his kindred spirit. On the 20th commemoration of his death he renamed this parc as Parque John Lennon. He ordered the best sculptor in Cuba to make a life-size bronze statue of Lennon sitting on a bench. Inscripted is this line of the song: You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. Each day there is a guard watching especially the glasses of Lennon.

Not to be confused with Parque Lenin, this quiet square is a few blocks from Cementerio Colon where the hop-on-hop-off bus stops. The bronze statue is something of a pilgrimage spot. A lady who seems to act as unofficial curator provides a spare pair of glasses but will remove them for safe keeping. The parque itself is peaceful and relaxing, somewhat dilapidated but that's the thing about Havana. There are fast food and drinks stalls around for sustenance. Mick Jagger played in Havana a few years ago; I wonder if they will name another place after him?
