“Nice park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Nice, big park to walk around in. The vivarium (reptile museum) was there and pretty interesting. Parque El Ejido seems a little nicer and cleaner, but it may have only seemed that way since it was cloudy when we visited La Carolina.

“Very nice city park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Across from Jardin mall, La Carolina is a nice place to go to walk around and grab a snack or have a picnic. There are many open fields to play sports or take a dog for a run. There is a man made water way with paddle boats you can rent for $3.50.

“Perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

When we arrived we visited lots of attractions such as the vivarium, the basketball courts, and the very long course that loops around the park. So it's very good for running.

“Large central park with lots to do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

This large central park is easily accessible and has plenty to do. There is a large BMX track, pedalo's on the lake and the botanical gardens. Nice cycle/ running track goes all around the outside of the park and there is various fitness equipment throughout aswel as many play parks and sports areas (volley ball/ basket ball). Gets fairly busy at the weekends and there are lots of food vendors.
