Parque Quinta Normal
Just west of downtown is shady Parque Quinta Normal, a 75-acre park with three museums within its borders and another just across the street. This is an especially good place to take the kids. The park was created in 1841 as a place to experiment with new agricultural techniques. On weekdays it's great for quiet strolls; on weekends you'll have to maneuver around noisy families. Pack a picnic or a soccer ball and you'll fit right in.
