I have never seen so many pigeons in one place. But kids love to go there because they can get real close to the pigeons. You shouldn't take food with you cause you know if you feed them they poop on you!!

If birds freak you out, this place is not for you. The are hundreds of pigeons, EVERYWHERE! You actually don't even have to feed them to have them stick around, they just hang there, everywhere, on the trees, park benches, walls, light poles, everywhere. I...More

You can not go to San Juan and not visit the Pigeons park or Parque de las Palomas. You will have so many of them running and flying around you looking for food. And when they fly away you can capture such beautiful pictures. A...More

This was my second time at this park and once again it was a great experience. Parque de las Palomas is a big hit with the kids. Our adult friends and I enjoyed it as well. It's also a great photo opportunity.

Love this place since I was little. Now I take my kids whenever we visit PR. They also enjoy it. Tip: they prefer to eat peas than the corn.

A random find with historical interest, amazing views, laughing children (and adults) and happy - if overfed - pigeons. Hubby and I both got landed on by pigeons even though we had no food. Quite charming. Stop moving for a second and you are fair...More

Worth visiting as it is amazing how many pigeons you will see! They love people and love to be fed. Just watch where you stand as you don't want too many of them flying over you!

Although it may be difficult to find public parking nearby, it is not impossible . However, in some nearby streets you can park and enjoy the ride without problems.
