Valparaíso, Chile

Quinta Vergara Park

The Quinta Vergara Park sits in the river valley between Valparaíso and Viña del Mar. This large green space includes landmarks such as the Palacio Vergara, the Quinta Vergara Amphitheater, and gardens that are home of the annual Viña del Mar International Song Festival. Runners will also find miles of great paths here, from smooth forest trails to hard-packed garden lanes. The park is quite hilly, so runners can gain some elevation work throughout the route (the staircase near Museo Artequin de Viña del Mar is a fun challenge!) We’ve mapped a 2.6 km loop around the park that highlights some of the possibilities.

Add-On: It’s ~1.5 km to the waterfront, which has great running either north or south.

Essentials
