Parque de las Palomas, San Juan

4.2
#6 of 19 in Parks in San Juan
Bird lovers appreciate Parque de las Palomas, a picturesque park where a variety of pigeons are known to gather. The park attracts pigeons of all colors, shapes, and sizes, often in large groups. Unlike with some other parks, here you’re encouraged to feed the birds. You can buy some feed from one of the local vendors in the vicinity. While there, pay attention to the park’s trees--many are worth examining because of their twisted trunks and unusual shape.

  • Every time we come to OSJ we come here. My kids and grandkids love this place. The pigeons are so friendly and will hop right up on your arm or shoulder. There's a guy outside the gate that will sell ...  more »
  • I went with my son, yerna and granddaughter. It is a beautiful, historic and fun place, but more a quiet place. This meeting with the Chapel of the Christ. Visitors to the park can appreciate a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean, The Fortin in Catano and the Central Range. People can buy food bags for pigeons and appreciate watching the pigeons eating and even feeding them out of your hand. It's a fun place for the whole family. Those who visit the Parque de las Palomas disftrutara a late afternoon of peace and tranquility and more watch the children enjoy sharing with the pigeons. I recommend it.

  • Great family experience. Piece of wisdom: pigeons prefer peas over corn. If you want to attract them to eat from your hands, you better purchase the bags of peas from the local vendors at the entrance of the park.
  • What a neat place. The time we were there it was great watching a small dog trying to upset the birds. It is a short walk from the cruise ship dock and is well worth the walk. What a beautiful part of USA
