Family Santiago

Family Fun: Parque de La Infancia

Sun is shining? That mean's its a wonderful day for exploring one of Santiago's best parks, the Parque de la Infancia, located on the base of Cerro San Cristobal.

“Let Nature be your teacher.”

– William Wordsworth

Spectacular days that call for the removal of jackets and winter boots should not be spent inside. After the strangest winter, Santiago has heated up with blue sky, a warm breeze and volantines (kites) in every direction. We spent the afternoon enjoying one of Santiago’s premier parks, the Parque de la Infancia (nearest metro is Cementerios).  This is paradise has been created specifically for children although it is so immaculately cared for it makes a worthwhile visit for the grownups too.
