Parque Lenin
Relaxing and Amusements parks
Children / Family
Horse ridding and horse carriage

Located south of Havana it is the biggest of its kind in Cuba covering an area approximately of 750 hectares.

Since it was built it became one of the most popular places among locals, especially children, who had here a rich variety of attractions and activities. But with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the park suffered a big decline in the number of attractions.

Several projects have being organized to recover the attractiveness of this complex, and even though there is a long way to go yet, this beautiful green spot is today a popular weekend destination among adults and children in Havana.

Parque Lenin has one of the biggest amusement offers for children and some offers for adults like Horse riding, bicycle hire and motorcycle circuit. Visitors can take a small train with open air carriages to move inside of this big area.

Some of the other attractions in the park are the swimming pools, the art Gallery Amelia Pelaez and the 9 meters high Lenin monument. Even though it is not in the list of the classical tourist attractions in Havana, it is worth to visit it if you have rented a car and would like to spend a relaxing weekend day outside the city centre or simply are looking for an attraction for your children.
