Parque del Lago supports 100% local culture, and here you’ll definitely have the best memories of your stay.

“Enamorate de tu ciudad” (Fell in love with your city) is a project that tries to position the parks of San Jose as active cultural spaces. That’s why every Saturday starting at 10:00am you can enjoy different activities in the designated spaces.

“The objective is to rescue the parks and take advantage of their architectural, spatial and natural beauty, giving back their character as open cultural space”, explained Manuel Obregon, Minister of Culture, in a press release.

The project has three main axes to guide the actions and the planned objectives: Historical memory, re-discovering San Jose and identity, art and multiculturalism.

As part of the activities you can enjoy, there will be visual arts, scenic arts, literature, traditional games, board games and facilities, urban expressions, popular dances and exhibits and projection of crafted and natural goods.

Remember that your date is every Saturday starting in February in the capital city, where you can support national culture with your participation. All the activities are free.
