It's a nice place but there is always a lot of people. There is also many many pigeons ! If you want to relax, don't go there, go to the Parque National.

Not much to see here, concrete park, not much art. It's ok if you wanna visit it out of curiosity. Some times there are some few cultural events.

Another place to see. I stayed in a hotel close to it. There were many sculptures at the time. Just another piece of San Jose.

We stubbled across this little park and just had to stop and take some pictures and take in everything that was going on around us. There are latterly thousands of birds just chirping away, hit seems so surreal. There are hundreds of people all arounds, some younger people were juggling. This is definitely something that you would want to fit into your visit to San Jose< CR.
