Parque O'Higgins - City Park Santiago - Chile

Parque O’Higgins, named after Chile’s liberator, covers an area of 77 hectares and is Santiago’s second largest park. It used to be the playground for the rich, but is now popular with the working class, especially on the weekends and holidays. There is plenty of green space where you can walk, cycle and picnic. There’s also a public pool, skate park, tennis courts and a football field.


Other attractions at Parque O’Higgins include: the amusement park Fantasilandia; Arena Santiago, which hosts musical events; Museo del Huaso, Chile’s cowboy museum, and El Pueblito, a small street with restaurants and shops that sell artisan goods.


The best time to visit is during the national holidays on September 18 and 19. At this time, the park has a number of fondas (traditional parties with food, drink, live music and dancing). On September 19, the military performs an impressive parade at Campos de Marte.
