Recently renovated, woods with native fauna, lookout points over the towns of Concepción, Talcahuano and Hualpén. Downhill bikers and trash in between, though.

Parque Ecuador next to Cerro Caracol is an amazing playground for children of all ages. A lot of playing instruments for climbing, swings, musical instruments.
