Last weekend we headed over to the children’s bike park in Las Condes. If you’ve got a kid learning to ride a bicycle or scooter for the first time, do check it out.
It’s a fenced off, car free zone safe for kids to scoot, cycle and zoom around to their heart’s content.
Sebastian sped around on his scooter.
It was the first time Rafa tried his balance bike, and he insisted on wearing hand protectors (socks).
Pirate eye patches are also on trend.
The boys were ripping up the lanes with some impressive cycle moves.
There’s also a cute playground with swings, slides, a climbing frame and a separate area for toddlers.
Hope you like it, mini Expaters!
Need to know:
It’s just a public park, so there are no entrance fees or opening hours.
We didn’t spot any good eateries nearby, so pack a snack for the kids.
We went in the cooler month of May, but there isn’t much shade so I imagine it gets pretty hot in summer.
Location: The bike park is just near the Wenlock school, on Plaza Las Condesas, off Carlos Pena Otaegui.
This is not to be confused with the larger pump track in Lo Barnechea which is for mini mountain biker adventurers, and a mud track, not tarmac.
