Lots of green space and playing fields. The park also has the stadium where soccer’s first FIFA World Cup took place. A couple of significant monuments, La Carreta and the Constituent’s Obelisk are located here.

Some of the best and most interesting statues are in this park. Lots of green space, shade trees and parking. Very much a park to see, near downtown.
