Rightin the heart of miraflores, this park is extremely popular with locals to sit and let the hurly burly go by. A haven for homeless cats. Its the park to visit. I go at least once a day.

This park is a park for everyone and includes their famous cats walking around, sleeping, living there and being fed by people enjoying the park. Nice walk though this park and very relaxing.

Great little park to stroll through and see all the cats that call the park home. Some are friendly and follow you around; others just watch you from a distance. Safe area to walk around or meet up with friends.
