Columbus Park (Parque Colon) Tours

Columbus Park (Parque Colon)
In a diverse city with streets that vary from colonial cobblestone to well-worn dirt paths, the bustling square of Columbus Park proves iconic, with an energy that unifies old world Santo Domingo with contemporary Dominican Republic.

Once known as Plaza Mayor, the square was renamed after its towering sculpture of Christopher Columbus in the late 1800s. The historic park is a popular gathering place for travelers looking to people watch and locals looking for a bit of relaxation come mid-afternoon. Columbus Park’s close proximity to landmarks like the Catedral de Santa Maria la Menor, the Municipal Palace and the old commercial district known as Calle del Conde, make it the perfect place to kick off a day in the city’s old Colonial Zone.

Practical Info

Columbus Park is located on the west side of Rio Ozama between Calle Isabel La Catolica and Calle Arzobispo Merino, across the street from Catedral Primada de America. 
Address: Calle Isabel La Católica, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
