Besides being a gem of a park, flanked by The Museum of Bellas Artes on one end, and historic grand sculptures on the other, on WEEKENDS the park is hopping with street performers, happy dogs and their people picnicking, puppet shows and often a photography exhibit (inexpensively priced) worth seeing by Hector Gonzalez de Cunco, near the intersection of Merced and Ismael Valdez Vergara.

An amazing variety of mature trees, plenty of seating, paths for strolling and large grassy areas for picnics make this a well utilized park. There were always a lot of people enjoying it. Unfortunately most of the beautiful statues were marred with graffiti from the protests.

A green oasis at edge of city and by river. Well maintained paths, lawns, gardens and trees. A few sculptures, plenty of seating. Lack of toilet facilities. Most pleasant to stroll through.

Be sure to wander and check out the ship statue, gift of Germany to Chile to mark 100 year of independence in 1910.

The place is good to walk or run. There are a few holes in pad, pay attention.
In Sundays the road close for cars in some parks and you can see a lot of people practicing sports

Not a very big one but a "nice-sized" one (especially for its length) with also plenty of big trees for shade and where there's like no shortages of benches alongside the walkways, this park is one where I had a pretty good walk-around in the afternoon unlike at Parque Bicentenario (to the further north) where the walk was just one under the sun with pretty much no shade whatsoever (due to a lack of big trees in that park). And apart from a nice walk here, my suggestion is not to miss this fairly-sizeable sculpture featuring some people on a boat with also a big bird on one end of the boat and water coming down the rocks under the boat to the circular pool below (just "interesting to look at" located on like the small roundabout at the end of a walkway to the east side of the Park), and actually there's also (in my opinion "somewhat surprisingly") a bust of American President Abraham Lincoln to be found in this park.

And despite being an "urban park" pretty much right in the heart of the city (just a bit less than a half-hour walk east from Plaza de Armas), this park located at Barrio Lastarria (a "somewhat quaint" neighborhood with outdoor art vendors & such) is kind of set apart I would say from the hustle & bustle of the city, and yes also located in the same neighborhood at just about a 10-minute walk from this park is Cerro Santa Lucia (a "beautiful hill" very pleasant to walk around with a tower on the very top for a nice 360-degree view) which you'll actually pass by on your way to this park if coming from Plaza de Armas (I visited that hill before coming over here); and also directly across the street on the north side of this park is Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (worthwhile stopping by with two floors of sculptures & paintings although not too many for a museum of that size I would say).

This is a nice park for a stroll and walk. There are statues from various countries given to Santiago to commemorate the centennial. Dogs there have their own little kennels to keep them warm on cold nights. They are fed and dressed by the locals.

Runs right through the city, and this is a nice place to have a stroll. Close to lots of the major attractions in Santiago.

This park is as long as it is calm. It provides a pleasant afternoon stroll from Patio Belavista, where you may have had lunch, to the Belas Artes Museum and maybe ice cream at Emporio la Rosa.
