On weekends there are always many craft vendors, food vendors, and some street entertainers. There is also a library you can visit and read newspapers and magazines.

This is a thriving park in the center of the city. The game that resembles volleyball is played and surprisingly high-stakes card games that I didn't understand are played too. Buy a good meat skewer, sit, and watch the city go.

Large green space with lots of people, vendors with artwork and food. Easy access to public transport and a nice way to get from Mariscal to Old Town if you're walking.

A lovely park with many fine old trees but also a lively crafts market on the outskirts of the Mariscal. Well worth a pause from city life to enjoy the trees and to stroll and to take in the shopping from native vendors. Nice.
