Very nice and well-kept garden near the city center. Nice place to get away and take a stroll or simply sit down and relax. There are a lot of nice pathways and different scenarios in the park. Worth it to walk through and relax.

Quite a nice garden 1000 pesos to enter though you will really not spend too much time there. Lots of ducks, fish and interesting plants around the gardens.

The Japanese Gardens are very beautiful and calm. When I went there there weren't many people which was better because it allowed me to enjoy the place calmly and better chances to take pictures. There's one point in the lake that there are tubes getting...More

A wonderful relief to the somewhat ‘progressive noise of modern La Serena’... i.e. the area away from the Beach. While it is adjacent to a major highway, that I feel offers an inviting contrast to to what is and what could and sometimes IS in...More

It's a pretty standard Japanese garden, too much traffic noise around to really enjoy it and relax. Entry is cheap so if you're into this stuff it's worth visiting.

This was bigger than I expected. I stopped in before walking to the lighthouse by the beach. It's very cheap to enter and there are fish pounds and ducks there too. Nice place to walk around for an hour or so.

I recommend visiting this place, is so peaceful and meaningful. The entrance was 1.5 dollars and totally worth it. If you like to take photos, there's a lot of great spots for outdoors pictures. They have many ducks walking freerly around the garden. Also they...More
