At 45 m (148 ft), Cerrito de Huajsapata provides a view of Lake Titicaca and the town of Puno. A statue honoring Manco Cápac, founder of the Inca Empire, is perched on top. One legend says that he emerged from Lake Titicaca along with his sister-consort Mama Ocllo. It’s also said that underground paths connect the monument with Cusco. We visited here with Amaru Tours. The lookout itself is not picturesque, but it’s worth a stop for the panoramic view.

This is a viewpoint 2 blocks away from Plaza de Armas, which gives you an overall view on Puno and the Titicaca Lake. I would not really call it a park. There’s a large white statue of a pointing Inca. We were told that the area though is not so safe for tourists after dark, so go before to chill with a view!

There are two statues that overlook the tourist centre of Puno - there's a giant condor, and there the statue of the Incan credited as being the creator of the Inca empire in Peru, Manco Cápac.
Up there is park with good views over the city.
The photos I include were taken from Plaza de Armas, one at a longer distance and one zoomed in.

A short taxi ride from the main plaza takes you to this amazing vantage point on the hill overlooking Puno city and towards Lake Titicaca. Amazing views.

I agree with other reviews here. After the hard work of climbing the hill and steps, you are rewarded by litter, broken bottles and the smell of urine. Some bag snatches have been reported up here too. It is a shame that the local authorities cannot keep this clean, as more energetic visitors like to climb to this vantage point, and it really is an amazing view when you get to the top.

It isn't a huge park - it is more of a peak (Cerrito Huajsaparta), with its statue of Manco Capac (the founder of the Incan empire) pointing out to the lake. It's well worth the strenuous journey though!

Short walk from the main square. Broken glass and lots of garbage, but the view over Puno was nice. Smell of urine as well!

It is located behind the cathedral of puno. You can climb up so that you can see the puno city and lake titicaca. However, there are too much garbage around the stairs.

It was kind of hard to get up to this park based on the directions that were in my guidebook. But after a hike/climb up some rocky terrain, my friend and I were treated to a lovely view over the city of Puno and out across Lake Titicaca. It was a little sketchy at times, but in the end well worth it...
