This is a must see place in Lima. The park is full of fountains that are lit up at night and there are some spectacular light shows at each fountain throughout the evening. It is also a great place to watch the inhabitants of Lima relax and enjoy themselves.

A great park to visit in evening. Big public space with lots of fountains, statues, landscaping, great people watching, and lots of great spots for pictures. There is a "magic water show" that is pretty nice for being in a public park. Admission is very cheap. Recommend if you like parks and fountains.

We walked to this park from our hostel and there were locals playing in the park as well as many families enjoying the day. There was a market on the back side of the park that had about 20 vendors selling cheeses, breads, fruits and veggies, as well as prepared foods. We bought some bread and cheese and spent some...

Some people might brush this off and think, "why should we g =o its just a park with fountains..." but no, it is so beautiful. I did this my last night in Lima, my flight was that night at like 1 or 2 am. So I went, backpack and all, and walked around this beautiful park with so many colorful... More

The waterfalls were amazing and the show is definitely worth it. We would recommend using a tour guide for this outing even though the cost is extra. The additional costs are worth it as the tour guide provides transportation to and from your hotel eliminating travel costs but more importantly, the guides by pass what was an extremely long line...

The park is in the Guinness world records for the most water fountains in a park. It's better to view after dark as the fountains look more impressive during darkness. The fountains are pretty cool, there are ones that form tunnels to walk through. It's takes about an hour to look at all the fountains. At 7:30pm everyday there is... More

The water features are beautiful and the main show is performed at different times (last one is at 9:30 pm). It is amazing, I have never seen anything like it. The entry price is 4 soles and is very reasonable obviously. There is a map to walk through the park. Don't miss the part on the other side of the... More

Loved it. Not quite the belagio but good fun, pretty, and they make a lot of effort to tell a story to music. There are lots of shapes, colours and a later show. It's actually a very pretty park too with more fountains and a train to ride around.

This water fountain show reminds me of the water show in Barcelona. The fountains shoot water to music and with various colours projected onto the water. They also project images of the traditions and heritage of Peru. We loved it and saw 2 shows (identical) in the same night. Note it's quite a far way from Plaza Mayor and best... More
