Closed, except for people feeding cats

Looks like a pleasant park in central Miraflores, but could not be visited due to measures to contain corona. You could walk around though. Especially the flower beds looked nice!

At night I observed locals entering the park to feed the stray cats.

Wonder why the park is named after US president Kennedy known for his interventionist policies in Latin America and associated with the botched invasion at the Bay of Pigs (Cuba) in 1961.

Pretty Neighborhood Park

Kennedy Park and June 7th Park are the neighborhood oasis in Miraflores. Craft fair, food vendors, flower gardens and lots of stray cats. Bordered by Miraflores City Hall and Iglesia Virgen Milagrosa. Worth a visit.

So many cats! Even though there was some construction when we visited, we enjoyed our time in this little park. There were cats scattered around and some people were leaving food for them.

Nice little park in the middle of the city--the cats are the "draw"
Feb 2020
This park is surrounded by streets, historic buildings, small shops, a nice church, new commercial establishments, and restaurants. The reason for the park is to recognize JFK and his relationship to Peru. However, the main reason people go the park is that the local cats seem to find this to be a safe haven for them. They are EVERYWHERE! Many of them are sleeping in some strange places--bushes, trees, the flower beds, the paths and benches. Even the locals are taking pictures of them.

There are some interesting sculptures in the park and some religious symbols. Many families bring their kids to use the playgrounds. The trees and shrubs are well marked for gardeners. It is a nice "nature break" to see a little green in a city that has a lot of cement, stone, hanging wires, and re-bar.

Unexpected treat

I was killing time walking around when I came across this park. Apparently you can adopt cats from here. There were dozens of cats hanging around. And a beautiful church right next to the park.

Nice green area
Feb 2020
A very beautiful park in the Miraflores area. There are large numbers of cats who are quite unkind and bite and scratch when they are touched. In addition, some of them look sick.

Lovely gardens and cute and tender cats
Feb 2020
I visited the park on a Sunday when lot of people visit the place. You can dance in the place with the locals are dancing to a sound mixer. Many, many cure cats to satisfy your maternal instincts. You can feed them, walk around and see and buy popular art.

mas gatos!

The parque itsef is nice with flowers and trees and kids playing on a playground but the repuation for it being "cat park" is definitey a thing of the past because while there were some cats there it was nothing like expected. maybe saw 10-15 in te whole park, and its not small.

Lots of cats and places to sit. Plenty of people around and sellers. There was a small market within the park each evening I was there. There's also a geocache within the park.

Just a park
Feb 2020 • Couples
Small part in the way to the sea side, famous for its cats. But really just another park with a church. It’s not bad, just average.
