Everyone who lives in Providencia, a commercial and residential community, knows this as one of the city's most captivating—and least publicized—public parks. Its gardens are filled with sculptures by Chile's top artists and because of its pastoral atmosphere, the park is popular with joggers and cuddling couples. In the center is a wood pavilion that hosts art exhibitions. To get here from the Los Leones metro stop, walk up Pedro de Valdivia towards Cerro San Cristóbal, and over the river. The park is on your right. It hosts a jazz festival every January, and a little farther west, is one of the free exercise stations that dot the city.
