This is a good place to watch people and the local life. It is good early in the morning or late in the evening. In the afternoon, there are lot of tourist buses and tourists wandering around.

The park was very beautiful, I wish I had spent more time there. The confidant chairs were cool and romantic. The churros were amazing! The scenery was just awesome, I can’t wait to go back.
