Jardin del Corazon, La Serena

Stroll the gardens of Jardin del Corazon, a Japanese-themed park dedicated to the twinning of La Serena and the Japanese city of Tenri. Built in 1994 with support from Japanese mining companies in Chile, the garden was designed by architect Akira Ohira. Roam along picturesque cherry trees and koi ponds, passing small bridges and undulating paths, or rest on a bench and watch ducks, swans, and turtles. Don't miss the park's bonsai tree collection.

  • Framed in the middle of the city, this garden is like entering another dimension, or like taking a leap to the East. Quiet, beautiful, allows you to reflect watching the water run through streams and small waterfalls. There is a bonsai garden worth visiting.

  • A must-see of La Serena. Spacious, beautiful, quiet, economical entrance. Excellent family panorama or to walk alone.

  • A beautiful park very well constructed that truly resembles parks in Tokyo (albeit very small by comparison). Entry is only 1000 pesos and it is well worth the obvious maintenance. Very crowded on a winter Saturday, but simply lovely. Look out for turtles and scan the green waters for the fish swimming beneath!
  • Nice and calm place. If thinking own garden, here you can create new ideas. I was missing cafeplace
