Sunday is the day for sports. In the prosperous eastern part of the city, jogging and bicycling are popular, and inline skating has caught on. Some streets are closed to traffic across Las Condes, Providencia, and Santiago Centro. People also take fútbol (soccer) games quite seriously. Head to an open park to check out some local pick-up games, and try Parque de Los Reyes (near Barrio Brasil) if you want to see futbolito (soccer played on a minipitch) at play.
