Park of the Reserve (Parque de la Reserva)

Free admission

Med 8 hektar nyklassiska trädgårdar och pagoder, prickade med prydnadsskulpturer, är reservatet Park (Parque de la Reserva) en välkommen grönska, som ligger på toppen av centrala Lima. Trots att parken anlades 1929 för att fira de civila arméerna i Stillahavskriget, var det inte förrän 2007 som den blev en funktion på turistresor och öppnade sin enormt populära Magic Water Circuit (Circuito Mágico del Agua).

Den bländande nya installationen har tretton individuella fontäner, var och en med cybernetiska eller interaktiva kvaliteter som utför en imponerande ljus- och vattenshow med toppmoderna ljuseffekter, lasrar och koreografi till musik. För närvarande innehar rekordet för världens största fontänkomplex i en offentlig park, Magic Water Circuit är en biljett, självstyrd attraktion som snabbt har fått hyllningar som ett av landets mest unika glasögon. Anmärkningsvärda höjdpunkter inkluderar Magic Fountain, den största och når höjder på över 80 meter; Tunnel Fountain of Surprise, en 35 meter lång vandringstunnel; och Fantasia-fontänen, som utgör mittpunkten i en imponerande musik- och bildshow.

The Basics

The world’s largest fountain complex, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the circuit is a spectacle to behold. Many of the fountains are interactive—you may get a light cool misting—making it a hit with kids and adults alike. The Maze of the Dream (Laberinto del Ensueno) invites visitors to follow a labyrinth of vertical walls of water to an inner circle. Fountain of Harmony (Fuente de la Armonía) is a pyramid with sides formed by jets of water and Magic Fountain (Fuente Mágica) is the park’s most powerful fountain, with a jet shooting a stream of water 262 feet (80 meters) into the air.

Travelers can explore the park on their own or as part of a private and group tour that incorporates visits to a wide variety of attractions, including Larco Museum, with its important pre-Columbian art collection, and the nearby pre-Inca archaeological site at Pachacámac.

A Well of Information

The park was laid out in 1929 to commemorate the civilian armies of the War of the Pacific, but it wasn’t until 2007 when its Magic Water Circuit (Circuito Mágico del Agua) opened that it became a feature on tourist itineraries. Look inside the tunnel in the middle for an exhibition space illustrating how the water reaches the complex and the challenges the city faced when it built its intricate urban water system. The dazzling new installation features thirteen individual fountains, each with cybernetic or interactive qualities that perform an impressive light and water show, using state-of-the-art lighting effects, lasers and choreography to music. Currently holding the record for the world’s largest fountain complex in a public park, the Magic Water Circuit is a ticketed, self-guided attraction that has quickly garnered acclaim as one of the country’s most unique spectacles. Notable highlights include the Magic Fountain, the largest, reaching heights of over 80 meters; the Tunnel Fountain of Surprises, a 35-meter long walk-though tunnel of water; and the Fantasia Fountain, which forms the centerpiece of a mind-blowing music and picture show.
