The 72 ha (177 acre) park is known as the home of the country's national soccer stadium, as well as many other sports facilities, including running and skating tracks, and soccer fields. Formerly the site of the country's main airport, the terminal building still stands, although it has now been converted into the national art gallery.

  • Very large public park with all sports amenities available. Anchored by the National Stadium on one end and a free Art Museum (repurposed airport) on the other. Beautiful extensive walking paths and sports fields fill the remainder. Locals really take advantage of their opportunities to use this great green area. Very well monitored by horse back police.
  • The park in La Sabana is beautiful. It has been upgraded, and provides a wonderful expierence to all to enjoy. The tennis courts are especially nice. The renovation was done professionally, and the condition is superb.
