Safe haven for criminals
In a nutshell
If you visit Paraguay, you have to see Asuncion
There is a large park, and as matter of fact, that is exactly what its name means - Large Park. But in Guarani, so maybe most people don't know that.
Located out of the north side of town, near the airport, the park is open 24-hrs a day and is free of charge. There is a fence around the entire perimeter, with access only through gateways. The inside of the park is patrolled so it relatively safe, even in the late hours.
For locals and visitors who find it difficult to go jogging in the city due to traffic or lack of good paths, this is the place to come. Likewise, there are several kilometers of biking paths too. But as you would expect from a park, there is lots of open green space. There are a few play areas for kids too. There are basketball courts, tennis courts, skating areas, etc.
Equipment: The park does not offer any equipment of any kind, only basic services like bathrooms and a few food kiosks.
You may need sun cream and insect repellent.
