Excellent choice to take a walk and escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nice lake, forest and green areas. It even has a small "beach". Also great for sports, bicycle and jogging. Good location in the heart of the city.

Parque Simon Bolivar was fabulous. I spent a few hours there on a Wednesday morning and am so glad I did. There are plenty of paved paths to walk, run, rollerblade, or ride your bike. The park is quite large so you can take a leisurely stroll, rent a canoe, paddleboat, or watch one of the many informal games of... More

The place needs a significant upgrade. Used by lots of joggers and bicyclists and that is about it. Next to the botanical gardens (sited right next door) it is a let down.

Large beautiful park, the real quiet corner in such a busy city. Ideal for spending a relaxing day, maybe a Sunday with the family. It has different paths and I suggest to be careful of pickpockets but in our case we were very lucky.

The park is near the Biblioteca Virgilio, it's big and would be nice for going to a bike ride. There is a big lake which gives it beautiful views. And some small shops to buy snacks.

Visited yesterday when it was a national holiday. Lot's of families at the park, lots of activity. The park is really big and well-kept. For me it was interesting how quiet it felt, whilst being in such a massive city.
