Santiago Sights

Parque Bernardo O'Higgins

  • Park/Playground

Updated 12/03/2014

Fodor's Review

Named for Chile's first president and national hero, whose troops were victorious against the Spanish, this park has plenty of open space for everything from ball games to military parades. Street vendors sell volantines (kites) in the park year-round; breezy September and early October comprise prime kite-flying season, especially around September 18, Chile's national holiday. There are pedalcab and rollerblade rentals on weekends, a competitve rollerblade track, and a terrain park with a deep bowl for skateboarders and rollerbladers. The park has a beautiful covered pool, which costs 5,000 pesos for a day visit; goggles and bathing cap are required. Both the Movistar Arena and Teatro La Cupola theater are at this park as well.
