Website

Located just west of mid-bay and stretching nearly 700 yards along the Costera Miguel Alemán,  this public park is a natural ecologically-protected area which covers 218,000 square meters (almost 54 acres) in the center of the city,  on a patch of land formerly occupied by a hotel of the same name.

Joggers,  walkers,  and many just seeking an escape from the hustle-&-bustle of the city often find refuge along one of the parks shaded,  tree-lined pathways  -  which also makes it a great place to people-watch.  The following are among Parque Papagayo's many features:  a soccer field,  basketball and volleyball courts,  a rollerskating rink,  an auditorium,  a library,  public swimming pools,  paddleboat rentals,  three lakes,  a replica of the  Nao de Chinagalleon,  a 65'-high piñata fountain,  a small zoo and an aviary,  a trolley-train which offers short tours of the park,  a section with amusement-rides for children,  and several  snack-&-beverage stands.  Public restrooms are positioned throughout the park as well.

Admission to the park itself is free;  however,  nominal fees are charged for use of the pools,  trolley- and amusement-rides,  paddleboats (30 pesos / half-an-hour),  and restrooms (3 pesos).
