In English this is "Pigeon park". Even if you don't like pigeons I recommend this stop. Locals bring kids here to feed the birds and it is so funny to watch! Pigeons will land on the kids as they feed them. I dare you not to laugh.

I went back recently after having gone many times as a child. I'm not really into birds so I can't say it's a favorite of mine but I have so many fond memories playing in this park and feeding the pigeons when I was little. If you can handle the smell and are really into birds, it's a nice place... More

The trees in the Park are breathtaking. You just have to experience walking by the huge wall and through the gates where the Spanish first settled.

Just a gem! It was a ton of fun and really low key. The views are fantastic and its easy to find. Well worth the effort. Simply walk to the end of Calle Tetuan and there you are.

We ended up at Parque Palomas while walking in Old San Juan. This place is right at the end of Calle Tetuan and near the famous Calle Cristo, with a boundary to the ocean and hence, the views are amazing. However, the most fascinating part about this park is the thousands of pigeons that flock this place. If you want... More

I think they were able to drive away the pigeons. There were so many less this time. Beautiful views of the ocean from this high point in the city.

I stumbled across this path and was amazed by the number of pigeons. There is a brick wall with holes for them to roost. They are on the ground, in the trees, on the rooftops -- just everywhere. There was a man selling corn and the birds would land on you and eat out of your hands. I texted my... More

The view is nice here, but there were too many pigeons for me. However, it is called Pigeon Park and there certainly are a lot!

We walked up to here when on a walkabout in old San Juan. It is worth a visit just to see all the pigeons being fed.ideal if you have kids.
