It is also known as “the Chinese Park” and it is a work of the Costa Rican architect Mayela Fallas which was built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the town-twinning between San José and Okayama (Japan). The design of the park is very peculiar because it is based on the Feng Shui´s philosophy with beautiful paths and flowery islets that makes it an ideal place to walk and rest.

One of its attractions is The Momotaro Statue, a present that the Japanese city made to San José and which culminates the highest point of the park. It has also different sport facilities like a soccer field and children´s game areas, as well as a bridge-tunnel, a garden of white stones, an amphitheatre, and a pond.

The park is very crowded during weekends and, unlike other parks, you can visit it at night, because it has a good lighting. You should know that this is a very commercial area, in case you are planning to go shopping.
