“Nice green oasis in San Jose”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

A nice small park with lots of trees packed in this small square. The dome, gardens and people there make up the city's vibe. Good for a short stop in between the key San Jose attractions.

“So worth the visit”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is one special park. The area is beautiful. The museum is near by so we took a walk there.
I enjoyed my time here.

“Green oasis”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Nice smallish park with 2 fountains and tall trees, good to take a break. Tragic all around it so not really serene

“Favorite park in San José”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

What makes San José vibrant and beautiful is the diverse presence of parks in some of its most popular areas.

Parque España crowns with high trees and secret trails one of my favorite spots in downtown San José. It's a great place to go for a walk, very intimate and full of flowers and varied vegetation makes it somehow a small piece of the tropical rain forest surrounded by city traffic.

During weekends and thanks to the initiative "Enamórate de tu ciudad", it makes it the core center of many cultural, recreational, and social activities, not to be missed by any traveler.

“Thanks Contributors”
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.
