Surrounded by a vertical cityscape and busy avenues, the park stretches over 22 hectares of lawns and gardens. Criss-crossed by a maze of marked trails and bike paths, it is a delight for walkers and sportsmen. Araucano Park has evolved over the years to include an ultra-modern leisure complex.
Besides the famous Kidzania,dedicated to children, it is equipped with playgrounds and picnic areas, not to mention the public swimming pool, which is indispensable for cooling off on sunny days. It is a very busy place and can also claim status as a national cultural centre, evidenced by the many popular concerts, exhibitions, and quality events that take place during the year.
You can also attend theatre and film festivals, as well as international chess tournaments. At the edge of the park there are bars and restaurants for friendly, robust dining.
