Magic Water Circuit of the Reserve Park

Home / Travel Blog / Magic Water Circuit of the Reserve Park
Magic Water Circuit of the Reserve Park

This old park was completely renovated in 2007, adding an important set of state-of-the-art cybernetic ornamental fountains. In one of its 13 fountains, which they call "Fountain of Fantasy", a colorful show is offered every afternoon with lights, sound, dancing waters, laser figures and multimedia projections directly on the water. To be able to enjoy this show you have to keep in mind the three times in which it is presented (see schedules below). This show lasts approximately 25 minutes. 

This park holds the Guinness record for the world's largest water fountain complex in a public park. 

If you feel like getting wet, don't forget to bring dry clothes and a towel, since there are a couple of fountains where adults and children can enjoy the jets of water. Changing rooms are available near these fountains, but be aware that the floor of the fountains is wet and can be very slippery. 

If you don't want to get soaked but still want to experience the fountains up close, then you must go through the water tunnel. 

The park is divided into two separate spaces that are connected by a tunnel.

Location 

Gate No. 3 (main entrance). Petit Thouars Avenue corner block 5 with Jirón Madre de Dios. Fence of Lima. Lime. Peru.

The Grand Lodge

The design of the Lodge has an Italian influence, it is a gallery or porch that is at ground level and is open on both sides, being supported by columns and arches. It is the main architectural element of the Parque de la Reserva and the 80 m high Magic Fountain. 

The Sabogal House

Also known as the Inca house, because in that place the pre-Columbian figures are shaped, it represents the maximum expression of Indigenism in the Reserve Park.

How to get? 

By metropolitan bus to the Estadio Central station. Another option is using the Integrated Transportation System that runs along Arequipa Avenue, to the Ramón Dagnino station on the entire front of the park.

We also recommend using a taxi to get to the Parque de la Reserva. It is safer especially if you visit it at night.

Finally, the best option is to take a tour that includes a tour of the magical water circuit.
