Parque de la Muralla - City Park Lima - Peru

Parque de la Muralla, complete with a track for children to cycle and a pedestrian walkway, sits on the banks of the Río Rímac. During its construction diggers unearthed the remains of 500-year-old city walls that were once meant to repel both the rising river and Dutch pirates. A small museum on the site explains some of the history of the wall and the city of Lima. There are also modern restaurants and tourist shops. It is clearly designed for families with children, but even on your own, it is a surprisingly pleasant experience, and worth visiting if you are already in the Historical Center.
