Concepción has many popular parks and gardens that add a hint of nature to this Chilean landscape. One of the most well-known is called Ecuador Park. This green space is located in the centre of the city and is spread out over 1 kilometre, with several important historical and cultural sites that are related to the city. In Ecuador Park, also known as Parque de la Alameda, we can find the Concepción History Gallery Museum that showcases the city’s history through dioramas. This area also has two important monuments: the statue in honour of Juan Martínez de Rozas, precursor of Chilean independence, and another dedicated to two French citizens who lost their lives during World War I.The park is located between Victor Lamas Street and Veteranos del 79 Street and is bordered by the Cerro Caracol, a wildlife park that has turned into a metropolitan park over the years due to its demographic situation within the city.The Municipal Library of Concepción was built around the park, surrounded by several academic centres, such as the Enrique Molina Garmendia High School and the Alfredo Silva Santiago Humanities Institute. In addition, the area has numerous coffee shops, ice cream stores and other restaurants perfect for grabbing a snack and wandering around this historic park.If you’d like to visit Ecuador Park, we recommend parking your car at the Saba car park located near this area. You will find it on 425 Caupolicán Street. This public parking lot is available 24 hours a day and is located near the city’s main points of interest, meaning that as a visitor you won’t have to worry about finding a place to park or how to get around town.
