    The Place to Be
    You never know the sights you’ll find, the people you’ll watch, or the experiences you’ll remember here. The bulk of Lima’s social and Vitamin D scene is arguably centered around Kennedy and 7 de Junio. The clean, safe grounds will quickly invite you in and make you crave for your return.

    Cats
    Basically two seperate parks in the centre of Miraflores surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars. Artists sell their goods here while the parks cats are the real stars of the show. If you are peckish treat yourself to some famous picarones, freshly made donuts. The grounds are well maintained and security patrols keep a watchful eye over the park.

    Lots of cats in this quirky park…
    This is a quirky little park in Lima, an easy walk from the hotels in Miraflores. The main feature of the park: CATS! Lots of them. They appear to be cared for by the locals, despite living outside. They’re friendly and pretty funny to watch. The park was in great condition, a nice little patch of green in the busy city. City workers were busy cleaning and planting and the like during our visit, a sign of the pride that Lima takes in its public areas. Probably not a must-do for your visit (unless you’re really into cats), but it was a fun little diversion in our day.

    That was the Cat's Meow!?
    Parque Kennedy itself isn't particularly thrilling. It's a tree-lined city square without major attractions. But then you spot the cats. Lots of friendly, lazy, relaxed cats. And believe it or not, they are wild cats that authorities provide food and water for, creating a safe haven for them. A nice thought. If you or your kids enjoy cats that purr when you pet them on the belly and behind the ear, Parque Kennedy is worth a quick visit. Lima's elegant, quiet cathedral is right next door and also deserves a little visit. Rarely have I seen more genuinely praying people than here. Whether they're praying for themselves or the cats, we don't know.

    The cats pajamas!
    Such a cute little park in the Miraflores area, clean and serene and of course... the kitties! They were all so friendly and playful, and obviously well cared for (lots of food, water, shelters and beds available). If you are a cat lover, this place is a must visit!

Lots of cats we counted over 30 in our stroll through the park and they do have some restrooms not the cleanest ever but definitely restrooms. There’s also a little plaza park right next to it so it really doubles the size.

For our son, the cat lover, this place was paradise. There’s so many cute, friendly kittens there. We were very careful about petting them, but they were super fun to look at. Beautiful park and a beautiful day.

Colonial style park centrally located and surrounded by restaurants and shops. The park is unique in the sense that there are dozens of street cats that live there, they are fed by locals and tourist and they are friendly and liked to be pet. Currently a section of the park is having a book fair where you can find almost any book that you can think of.

There is not really that much to see in the park… except lots of kittens willing to play with you. Must see for cat lovers.

You can also help feed the kittens while they wait to be adopted.

The kids were missing our cat. We found a park fully of very friendly, well-behaved felines. The cats seemed to like the attention and when they had enough wandered out of reach into the flower beds.
