This is a great park in the middle of Mendoza city. As well as including historic monuments relating to Argentina's war of Independence, it's just a wonderful spot in which to have a coffee, enjoy lunch or just wander around the lake. On the edge of the park is Museo Moyano, an excellent natural history and anthropology museum.

In the peak of the summer heat in Buenos Ares this Park is a sanctuary with its peaceful grounds, cool shady trees and virtually Quite yet close to the city and action. Beautiful biking and walking trails, lake, and birds. I had a full day of fun visiting the park, the added bonus a free wifi to stay In touch. Very nicely kept and super clean. The irrigation system is also based on old Inca methods.

General San Martin is known as the liberator because he helped remove the Spanish from Peru, Argentina and Chile. Montevideo has several squares you can visit on a walking tour.
San Martin Square was called “Cobo” until 1904, when it took the name of San Martín in honor of the Liberator. In the middle of the square there is a bronze equestrian statue of General San Martín, which is a replica of the masterpiece by José Daumas located in the square of the same name in the Federal District. In this square there is a memorial plaque indicating the height above sea level at which the city is located: 747 meters or about 22,000 feet.

The Parque San Martin is a very large park where people go at any hours to relax walk and eat.
The number of people in days of summer can impress anybody. At night .the amount of cars, people relaxing and walking makes a contrast to many of our parks where is not safe to go after dark.
The fountain the horse monuments and the lake are beautiful and very well maintained

We found a bicycle rental place close to the park and rented bicycles for 4 hours to tour around San Martin Park. Most of the time we were either on bike paths or fairly low traffic streets - a few times we had to cross major arterials but there were crosswalks so it was fine. The park is very diverse from large open spaces to stop for a picnic, play frisbee etc to very manicured and beautiful gardens. We were impressed to see many locals getting exercise by running, biking, skating, or crew rowing. We had fun stopping for an ice cream treat and taking a break to watch all the people enjoying themselves. Some areas of the park are busy and others are completely quiet. Overall a very enjoyable experience!

Close to the city (entrance through large iron gates). Many attractions: club (with lake), stadium (Malvinas Argentinas, from Godoy Cruz FC), golf course, planetarium, etc. Better to go by bike (there are bike paths, but cars also circulate there)

We walked around the lake in this park. Criss crossed with roads. More a park accomadating roads rather than walkers. Do visit the natural history museum at the end of the lake. Good exhibits even if as we you have no Spanish.

Great park. Clean and safe. Very green. There are places where you can take a break and enjoy the wonderful trees. Bunches available. The Continent fountain is a must to see. If you can reach the Gloria peak you won’t regret it.

Visited with my wife during an extremely hot day. The park is huge - ideal to visit by bike or hop on/off bus. Very clean and safe. Bring your bottle of water - you’ll need it for sure - plenty of places to refill it.

The place is quite nice with a large statue that describes how General Saint Martin spent his time at mendoza preparing his army to fight the spanish in Chile.

Besides that, you have the view, a small bar and terrible bathrooms.
