“Beautiful Park in the middle of Caracas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Caracas as a whole is a sprawling and often menacing city. In the middle, however, is a center of refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Parque del Este probably had it's heyday 20 years ago, but it is still fascinating and beautiful. Walking through the park is like walking through a jungle and exotic plant paradise. It is not uncommon to walk alongside huge iguanas. Some sections of the park are more populated, especially on the weekends when hundreds of young people practice break dancing, cheerleading, parkour, and a host of sports. If you are an American or European visitor you may initially feel intimidated but our family has been there two times and both experiences have been pleasant. I have been to many parks in South America and the Parque del Este is definitely one of the most impressive even if it has seen better days.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Years ago this was a very nice park to have fun with family. Main entrance if filthy and really loud. Once inside it gets better, but no so much. If you want to jog very early, it is ok to do it

“Nice to walk or jog, nice for kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

It's a big park in the middle of the city. It's right next to the Miranda subway station and it has parking lots. It's free. Many locals go there in the morning to walk or jog, and people also take kids to see the animals (the zoo-like part of the park). Sadly, the animals are not as well kept as they were in the past, but it's still nice to see them. There's also a place dedicated to reptiles and one to birds. On weekend mornings there are usually work-out activities.
