“Nice Park, Too Much Traffic”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Nice structure in the center, but there is too much traffic constantly driving around to really be able to enjoy what was once a highlight of the city.

“Beautiful little park in the middle of a busy city.”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is a great park to sit and people watch. Safe and well patrolled. Nice things to look at and a great place to sit back and relax for a bit.

“Good Landmark”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

We passed Parque Central several times as we walked around in the central shopping district. When we were there there were many people relaxing and walking through and around the park. Suggestion for all visitors is to be very aware of your possessions when visiting San Jose.Fuerza Publica police are quite visible all over the downtown area these days; yay!
