A free place for exercising, visiting the art museum, concerts at the national stadium or simply for a picnic.

I loved the diversity of this park. You can find a museum on one side, a skating rink on another, and soccer fields everywhere. Such a nice place and felt very safe.

Pleasant park in the middle of town. Enjoyed watching the kids play soccer and the folks just hanging out. Not much to do there, but its a pleasant walk.

Cool place to jog or walk on grass. Night time is the time to stay away. The park has a lake but I'm not sure but I don't think fishing is permitted.

Really nice place, just to go for a stroll and a picnic with friends or hang out with your kids in the beautiful wooden playgrounds. Also a good place to try out your kiting skills!

When we stayed at the Sabana Apartotel Norte we walked to the Park. It is a little scary crossing the streets in the area - I don't recall seeing many pedestrian cross walks so look for a light!
