Parque Kennedy - City Park Lima - Peru

Smack dab in the middle of Lima’s upscale Miraflores neighborhood is Parque Kennedy, a small, peaceful oasis from congested thoroughfares and skyscrapers.

Parque Kennedy draws lots of people. Young couples snuggle on benches, men in business suits sit on a small field of concrete stools and read the paper while they get their shoes shined, and vendors sell salty popcorn from red and white carts. The southern end of the park is home to a children’s playground. There’s a good view of the very ornate Iglesia de la Virgen Milagrosa on the north end.

In the evening, Parque Kennedy takes on the atmosphere of a little fiesta. Diners on their way to international restaurants, sidewalk cafés and clubs that ring Parque Kennedy stroll through. Some nights, the elevated cement circle in the park center plays host to artisans selling their creation or vendors hawking antiques. Outside cafés are usually full and decorated with white outdoor lights and table canopies.
