Parque Forestal

Stroll Santaigo’s graceful park

Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

I stayed right along Santiago’s graceful 19th-century Parque Forestal, Santiago’s long, narrow green space in the heart of the city. Here you’ll find people from all walks of life enjoying the park’s landscape and public art. Parque Forestal stretches from Plaza Baquedano to Mercado Central (Santiago’s historic public market), and it makes for a lovely walk.
The park sits on the land from the banks of the Mapocho River, and it’s truly a treasure. Don’t miss it.

Know Before You Go

Keep your exploring of Parque Forestal to the day time. In addition to the typical safety concerns of wandering parks at night, Santiago’s wild dog population likes to frequent the park at night. I stayed on smael Valdés Vergara between the art museum and the Mercado Central, and I never saw anything too dicey, but I wouldn’t want to run into dogs at night!
