We came here to visit the railway museum, but this nice park was a bonus. It was Sunday, so plenty of friendly dog walkers who were happy to chat and families too. Easy to find from the city centre on the Metro.

Surrounded by various museums (and not far from the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos) the Parque Quinta Normal, is really a great urban open space for relaxing. Quite a contrast to the veryday hurly-burly of down town Santiago

It is a metro ride away. It has a lake but no particular flowers or shrubs. You could spend a pleasant 30 minutes or more wandering around. I was here to visit train museum and Human Rights museum, both close by. If you want Green,...More
