Parque de la Amistad

The Parque de la Amistad is the great park in Santiago de Surco, a popular place with young and old. One of the main attractions is an original steam locomotive from 1926. Like in the old days visitors can enter an old train station, decorated with accessories from Peru's train history, buy a ticket and climb onto one of the three open wagons. The journey takes you 550m through the 30,000m² park passing all the highlights: An artificial lagoon (where you can rent a small pedal boat) or the copy of a Spanish Arc, the "Arco de la Amistad". The original Moorish arc constructed in 1924 on the Av. Leguía, today's Av. Arequipa, was a present from the Spanish residents living in Peru. Unfortunately this arc was demolished in 1939 during the modernization of Lima. The rebuilt copy of this sign of fraternity and friendship was inaugurated in 2001 in the Parque de Amistad by the king of Spain, Juan Carlos and his wife Sofia.

Overview Plan

Overview plan of the Friendship Park

The Cultural Center in the park serves as a place for the exhibition of art and provides a site for cultural and traditional events in Surco. It offers diverse ambiences for different happenings. The design was inspired by the old "Casa Haciendas" that were built on top of "huacas". After your train ride just relax in the beautiful surroundings on one of the benches in front of the Cultural Center or do some souvenir shopping. For kids you find a playground just at the entrance of the Parque de la Amistad.
