I always enjoy the animals that you find in the little zoo of this large park. It also offers a lot of possibilities to do exercises or just to enjoy the nice weather.

It is the most beautiful park in Caracas. It was designed in the 60s by famous brazilian architect Burle Marx. Since very early in the morning the park is full of joggers . There are magnificent old trees, and many birds, among them the famous "guacamayas" loved by all the inhabitants of Caracas. Not many flowers. Big lakes, one of... More

As a resident of Caracas, i usually wouldn't focus on highlighting the attractions of my own country, but this one can't be missed, the park is so big and so flexible, it can serve either for a musical performance, a relaxing tour around their zoo, workout sessions, training, or just a good place to relax and walk around, or sit...

It used to be a charming place and it somehow still is but it's very dangerous and dirty. May be worth a visit but definitely be careful.

In the city itself! although the small zoo has been declining over the last few years this is a great place for nature and sports lovers in the city.

When I lived in Caracas, I would go here after work to run and wind down from the day. It was nice to feel like I was away from the city in the midst of nature. Some days I'd just bring my work and finish it on a blanket. Love this place!
