A couple of weekends we went to Parque Las Rosas in Lo Barnechea. Is it the best park for children in Santiago? It’s certainly the cutest.
All rides and attractions are included in the entry fee. Which is a good thing, as I lost count how many times Rafa went on the ladybugs.
And then, face painting!
Annabelle had a great time in the ball pond. Until her brothers arrived…
We said hola to the friendly animals in the petting farm.
Annabelle enjoyed a few turns on the carousel.
And we soon worked up an appetite for our picnic.
Then as we adults enjoyed a coffee in the sunshine, the kids took a few (OK, several) turns on the train.
Alas a coffee doesn’t replace the need a siesta it seems…
Parque de Las Rosas is one of my favourite parks in Santiago. We’ll be there again soon. Watch out for the tiger!
Need to know:
Mornings are generally quiet, but Parque de Las Rosas can get really busy in the afternoons, especially on weekends and during holidays.
There is a small stand selling empanadas, chips (french fries) and burgers, but we preferred to take a picnic. There is a small cafe for drinks, sweets and coffees too.
Entry cost: $6,000 for adults, $4,000 for children, babies free. It’s also half price with a Lo Barnechea vecino card. All rides and attractions are included with the entry ticket.
Open from Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm and from 10.30am – 5.30pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
Address: El Parque de las Rosas, Raúl Labbé 14011, Lo Barnechea, Santiago.
