It is not very big but it has a lot of beauty and a great charm!! The only problem its that sometimes can be a bit lonely and it can get dangerous if it is!

Valencia doesn't have parks for the family like another cities around the world. It only has this one. It is well maintained and the crew members are nice. We go every weekend with our daughter and we always have a great time. Highly recommended.

You can go there and jogging, run or just walk around the natural and fresh view. Has good music al over the place and there is good security, but you have to wait a little to park.

A perfect place to relax in Valencia, very attractive park, very well kept, many people in Valencia walk and jog there specially in the morning, if you visit Valencia you should not miss it. There is also "The Cabriales Festival" were different kind of musical show are presented on the park on Sunday morning during the dry season

Big area full of trees. The city's main place for walking or running. There's picnic areas. It gets crowded on the weekend as families go there to spend the day.

If you are spending any time in Valencia, Venezuela, be sure to visit Parque Fernando Penalver. It is a huge, peaceful oasis in an otherwise noisy, traffic-filled, mostly concrete city. When viewing the park from the freeway, you wonder why anyone would build a park right there beside it. The other side borders on a quieter area leading towards La... More
