Parque Araucano is a large park in Las Condes Santiago, more specifically across from the huge Parque Arauco shopping mall.

This park covers many hectares with many areas for different activities both for young and old.

What to do and see

Some of the things you can do at Parque Araucano are:

Unfortunately "collective sports" such as soccer/football, rugby can not be played here (see the photo of a sign saying this at the bottom) because it messes up the grass!

Many events are held in this park every year however most have an entrance fee such as the Feria de Jardinería y Paisajismo (The Gardening and Landscape fair). Though you do get the odd free event such as the Air Show over Parque Araucano.
