“Thanks Contributors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Looked at all the contributions for places to visit in San Jose. Not a lot of great architecture in the city but this park is well worth a visit either as part of a walking tour or just to chill. It has lovely flowers and trees which we enjoyed. Often things going on around and about the park but check out the tourist website for these.

“Intimate park is a garden for lovers of culture and more..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This Park is very close to Parque Morazan and Jardin de Paz. With its mature foliage and flowers as well as decorative fountains and sculptures this park attracts culture lovers for artists displays on the weekends and kissers and huggers at night. Lovely to visit.

We spent a lovely afternoon birding this shady park next to the Edificio Metalico and the contemporary art museum. Full of colorful birds and very relaxing.

“Saturday fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

If you´re in San Jose this is, by far, the best place to go on a Saturday. You can go and tack pictures, see a show or tack part of a free workshop (sports or artistic).
Every Saturday the Ministry of Culture is in charge of preparing lots of activities for the people of the City. Usually fun for me.
