Nice free park

Just chill or participate in one of the activities like horse back riding or playing table soccer.. also don't miss out on the delicious ice cream.

Not sure what all the fuss is about, it's just a park - looks pretty but there's nothing special about it.

This park is pretty and offers insight into Sucre, and Bolivia's, past. The highlight for me is the tower that was indeed designed by THE Gustave Eiffel! The park makes for great people watching too! Make sure to go in the evening as well as during the day.

A great spot for people watching. Be quick to get a seat in the shade ! A little quieter than the main square which can be a nice change .

I guess this is the only place you can sit down on the grass and read a book in the center of Sucre. Nice place, many people, close to a park for children with many attractions.

The park is very pretty but you cannot step on the grass you can only stay on the path they have some very very old trees that are very tall and that their base it's very very thick pretty sight if you'd like to walk in a park in the afternoon there's nice lightning hitting it

The park itself is not that special. But there is a lot you do and see there. People playing music, children playing, activities, and so on. So it is a fun place to hang around!

We didn't see any other tourists here when we visited. There were lots of locals - teenagers practicing dance routines, older people sitting on benches, schoolkids hanging around after class, etc so it's a good way to observe local life and it's nice for a stroll though. There's a kids section and some pedalo swans that look like they've not... More

The park is small, there is a lot of rubbish (10/12/16) and you cant touch the grass. What is better in a park then just laying a blanket down and lay in the grass. Most tourists we saw today seemed to have the same feeling: why did we go here?

I love the vibe of this park. Lots of trees, people bring their dogs, many park benches, food stands. On Sundays it's packed but still a relaxing environment.
