On the way from the city centre to the Parque Nacional, this park adjoins the Parque Morazan and is a walkway which offers some seats and shade. However, it is cloaked in graffiti and you are likely to be approached for cash.

A nice spot for a quick stroll in the park. There were several parks one right after the other in this area--you just have to cross the street to get to each one. Park in a guarded lot and walk around. Near Galeria Namu--stop there...More

The huge tropical trees defy the never ending traffic that surrounds this park and provide a lovely oasis. We walked through on the way to the Jade Museum and were impressed with how well maintained it was. Interesting tribute to their colonial history.

The park itself is nice, quiet and tropical. The statue of Juan Vasquez de Coronado (Spanish founder of Costa Rica) has graffiti on it, the fountain he faces was not working and there was trash all around. Overall, not well maintained.

There were lots of people around. Sometimes there was music. Sometimes there was the selling crafts. Very well located. It was a really beautiful plaza.
