Very pretty park
Feb 2020
This park is about the Incan culture of Peru. Very clean and pretty, all made of rocks. The local people really enjoy using their parks.

An interesting architectural park showing local pride.
Jul 2019
This park was designed by a Spanish architect in the style of Gaudi, and built in 1992 at a low spot in city life after the civil war. Huancayo was on the font –line of the fight against the “shining Path” movement and suffered greatly in those years – there certainly was no tourism till this century. The park is clean and surprisingly well maintained. Certainly worth a visit. For an English speaker there were plenty of titters about the name of the local people – Wanka. There were even Wanka taxis!

Dull

This is advertised as one of the highlights of Huancayo. It is a very sad reflection of what a real park could/should be. Like Huancayo it is extremely dull.

Always peaceful and fun

We actually read the descriptions of who the statues were this time. They are famous Peruvian artists of poetry, music, and paintings. The natural wood bridges could be dangerous for little ones and older folk. The cleanest place In Huancayo. Nice to visit in day or night.

It is a very picturesque square
May 2019
If you are not from the city you will see canals, statues, and portal with characteristics of the region. The statues are representative people of the region. At a glance you, you may think it is a Spanish square...it is because its designed were influenced by a Spanish architect

What a pleasant surprise

So beatiful in an almost weird way. Reminded me of Park Guell in Barcelona. Real world class in Huancayo.
I have to look into the Wanka culture

we had loads of fun when playing in this park for hours, would highly recommend it for anyone that's traveling with a child who likes the outdoor and is curious about architecture!

must see!!

Charming and magical space in the middle of the city. A real oasis and free!! If you like Gaudi or nature as art, you love this space from Plaza de Sombreros on one end to the gardens with their waving paths and multiple bridges.

Nice little park
Aug 2016 • Solo
The artwork is quite interesting and there is plenty of space to sit down. The park is quite small, you can walk through it in a couple of minutes. Would be good to have someone explain you a bit about the wanka culture.
