Parque De La Reserva in Lima is also known as the Parque De Las Aguas. This is a review of the park of the water fountains in Lima, Peru.
Lima, at least the parts of the city that we were in, was a surprisingly beautiful place. We walked on paths bordering the cliffs of the ocean. All along the paths were well-manicured lawns, flower beds, and a park where they made some fun sculptures out of mosaic tiles, and a giant statue of a couple kissing.
It was an unexpected and very pleasant surprise that Lima, Peru was clean, beautiful, and (dare I say it,) romantic.
One of the best things we did in Lima was visit the Parque de Las Aguas, also known as the Fuentes De las Aguas, at the Parque De la Reserva in Lima, Peru.
10 years ago, this was a large park that was filled with brown patches and sidewalks that were falling apart.
Today, it is one of the premiere parks of the world.
There are more than 10 large fountains, one of them rivaling, in size, the fountain outside the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
Entrance costs 2 soles (about 68 cents).
Carrie and I spent 2 or 3 hours just wandering around the park, looking at the beautiful water features, listening to the different music accompanying each fountain, and having a generally mellow and wonderful time.
To whoever took on this project, thank-you. The Parque Fuentes de Las Aguas is one of our favorite experiences from 7 months in 10 countries in Central and South America.
