Parque de la Alameda reviews
So beautiful, very nice trees (i'm a tree person), great views over the city and perfect for a long stroll through it. It is quite a big park. more »
Enjoyed strolling through this park on a regular basis and seeing the changing seasons and locals out enjoying the green space. Nice lookouts towards the cathedral and central Santiago. more »
When the sun is right it's the perfect place to go read under the trees. It's windy so a jacket is perfect. There are public bathrooms there as well and a couple of cafes. People come jog here and walk their dogs and it's just steps away from a lot of cafes and restaurants, but they are the touristy restaurants - you have to try some of the more authentic places.
Beautiful park on the out skirts of old city in Santiago. Plenty of shade, seating. Good cafes near buy to watch the world go by.. fabulous old trees and water features.. relaxing even with the traffic passing.
