  • Super Beautiful place. To walk and admire the scenery. When we were many people doing exercises and walking with their dogs.

  • Very nice place, super careful, but for me loses to Rosedal in terms of park with plants... Receives many visits from students, cultivates several interesting plants.. It's not big, but you can still lose 2 hours if you see it all with patience there... It's FREE! If you have time, it's worth the visit.

  • I find everything in this City to be much larger than expected. Wear comfortable shoes and take guide book, if like me you get stuck looking into locked buildings and don't read Spanish. Closes at 1700, so you need to make way to the ONE EXIT way before then. Only services a single hard-to-find comfort station; no education, or live help evident while we were there.
  • Relaxing place, good for a walk and to read a book, or just wander around appreciating the different kinds of flora. There's no entrance fee! There's a butterfly house, but be aware that it only opens from 12 pm until 13 pm on weekends and holidays :)
