Parque Metropolitano La Sabana
Lonely Planet review for Parque Metropolitano La Sabana
Known simply as Parque La Sabana, this 72-hectare green space at the west end of the Paseo Colón was once the site of the country’s main airport. Today it is home to two museums, a lagoon, a fountain and a variety of sports facilities. It is also home to the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica (Costa Rica National Stadium), where international and Division-1 soccer matches are played. During the day, it’s a great place for a stroll, a picnic or a relaxed jog along its network of paths.
