Its prime location on the top of a hill assures captivating views of the mountains at a distance, the roof tops of the homes below and surrounding neighborhood, and cool (frequently chilly) mornings and evenings. Thanks to its Western exposure, the sunsets are beautiful, only to be followed by the city lights of the GAM (Greater Metropolitan Area), equally as captivating.

Large wild parrots (‘Loras’) are seen and heard every morning and afternoon, high up in the trees, enjoying the park and chatting with their friends. This is true “Pura Vida” Costa Rican living at its best!
