Fodor's Review

For years this rambling olive grove was slowly disappearing as homes for wealthy citizens were built on its perimeter. The process was halted in the 1960s, in time to save more than 1,500 gnarled olive trees. Some of the trees are more than a century old and still bear fruit. A network of sidewalks, flower beds, fountains, and playgrounds make this 50-acre park a popular spot on weekend afternoons.

Quiet and clean

A wonderful park in an elegant neighborhood--one of the few places I could feel safe in a park in Lima!
