The park itself is nice. There are some people that exercise and lot of homeless, junkies and prostitutes. Is little scary to walk outside of the park when it gets dark. Only one gate was open. All the other was locked, and I have to...More

Beautiful old park to the side of the Pinoteca. It is an older style, well maintained park that reminded me of the Botanical Gardens in Buenos Aires. To address the security concerns that have been raised, it's perfectly safe. Plenty of people walking around including...More
