The Magical Water Circuit opened in June of 2007 and was an amazing display of fountains, some choreographed to music, some interactive. It takes a few hours just to go through and look at them all, but it's a lot of fun.
It is mostly crowded the week before up to Peru's independence day July 28th. It is better to go at about 5 p.m. so you are not waiting in long lines to get in!
The park is open both day and night, but to really take in the beauty of the lights, night is recommended. You may want to bring a change of clothes and shoes if you are planning on interacting with the racing fountain. It's not timed, but randomly done. The water comes up from the ground in a circle and you can try running inside the water rings to get to the center; however, don't be fooled into thinking that because it has stopped for a second that it will do that again. Unsuspecting tourists who think that they've got an idea of what it will do next have found themselves walking home with wet jeans and shoes (as did your author) and if you're taking one of the night tours, it can become a little chilly, but don't be afraid...you're on vacation, enjoy!
The park is called Parque de la Reserva and the water fountain shows are at : 6:30 pm / 8:00 pm / 9:30 pm / 10:30pm
Here are some photos of the park:
