At one time this must have been a pretty little park but not now. Littered. Run down. Trees need LO)TS of attention. Broken glass everywhere. NOT a good place for children. If "local culture" includes drunks and homeless, then this fits the bill.

They are at present doing this park up, quite slowly. You can see Sloth's and varieties of bird life here, the Sloth's are a bit difficult to spot on your own but you will see kids around asking for a dollar to show you where...More

We were on a Cruise April 2016 and decided to venture out to the park... a small rain forest... so much potential to be a clean place to visit. It appears that they are trying to upgrade the sidewalks but looks like they ran out...More
