Parque Saval - City Park Valdivia - Chile

The grounds of Parque Saval come alive on weekends with families picnicking, strolling and just enjoying the outdoors. This 30-hectare park has two major attractions. Across the water lily pond that even Monet would find a challenge to paint, are islets scattered like autumn leaves. There birds rest and nest. On one shore of the lagoon is the Parque de Esculturas Guillermo Ranco Espinosa with over three dozen wood and metal statues by artists of various countries. From the park’s entrance a right-hand road wends to picnic areas. Near here is a smaller water lily pond. A hiking trail leads to the top of a hill.
