I live nearby and the park offers me a lot of great activities. You can go for a run there, to take walk or have fun during the weekends with a lot of different activities.

The park is a popular place for people to relax, exercise, and picnic. Near the National Stadium plenty of restaurants nearby.

A wonderful resource in the City centre. Always full of activities, many which you are made welcome to take part in. Particularly at weekends the park is buzzing with activity as local families make their way here to enjoy the park.

The park is always busy because there is nothing else to do here. It is a nice park, but like all roads and pavements in Costa Rica in the paths are in terrible shape
