Across the street from the Convento de los Dominicos, this small Colonial Zone park is a good choice for a relaxing break. Offering shady benches under trees, it is a popular meeting place for locals. The sculpture in the center of the park depicts Juan Pablo Duarte, one of the founding fathers of the Dominican Republic.

A couple minutes walk off of the El Conde. Very beautiful and historic. Nice place to sit down for a few minutes to rest. Especially on hot sunny day because of the shade.

Visited here on the way to Convent Church nearby. Seemed to be well maintained and very peaceful. Duarte was conisdered to be one of the founders of the Dominican Republic and its independence from Haitian rule in 1844. Exiled many times because of his views.
