Lima Parks: A Breath of Fresh Air in a City Full of Fog

Lima, Peru. These two words combined don´t exactly evoke pictures of lush landscaping, wildlife, ponds and glades of green trees. Lima, the capital of Peru, is more generally known for its hazy, polluted skies, crazy traffic patterns and concrete buildings. But behind the harsh exterior of this concrete city of almost 9 million people, there are plenty of mirages of beauty and greenery.

Lima has a surprising number of beautiful parks, found scattered like jewels all around the city. There are countless tiny neighborhood parks found in the suburban districts of San Borja and San Isidro but more popularly known are the large tourist attraction parks more centrally located through the city.

Parque Kennedy is likely the most well known park in all of Lima. Surrounded by the tourist center of Lima, Miraflores, Parque Kennedy boasts 22,000 square meters of walkways and manicured lawns and has 3 main entrances. One side faces Restaurant Row, a line up of cute cafes and restaurants where many visitors go for dinner or dessert and can enjoy the view of the park. The large amount of open, fresh, natural space found in the middle of the traffic and the downtown business buildings is a nice relief and really adds a touch of peace to the busy center city.

Parque de la Reserva is a bit less traditional. While there is certainly nothing lacking in grass or greenery, the main attraction to this park is its water and lights show. Originally opened in 1929 to honor the civilians who fought in defense of Lima during the Pacific War, the park received a face lift in 2007 when the Circuito Magico del Agua (The Magic Water Circuit) was opened. With 13 different fountains, each with their own design and light shows, Parque de la Reserva made the Guinness book of world records for the largest fountain complex in the world.

Parque del Amor, on a much smaller scale, isn´t geared towards such big masses of people, but rather to couples, walking two by two, arm in arm. The park is filled with colorful mosaics on the benches and walls that add a mystical and romantic element to the seafront view. In the center of the park rests a large statue of a man and woman laying together, locked in a passionate kiss. Titled ¨El Beso¨ (The Kiss) was crafted by the famous Peruvian artist, Víctor Delfin.

Lima may be known for highways and heat waves but if you take the time to stop and sit surrounded by a bit of leafy green you will be surprised how the rhythm changes. It´s an opportunity to take a breath, experience the natural atmosphere, and appreciate a whole other side of Lima.
