The historical park starts by a boardwalk through a forest of native trees, mangrove, flowers and animals. There was a house that used to be in downtown Guayaquil and belonged to a doctor. They moved it to here in the 1980s to save it from destruction. Same story for another building. It was saved from destruction and rebuilt here. It used to be a hospice for the old and invalid. We attended a comedy show at the farm house in the park. Then there was a theater play in the yard of another colonial house. We spent a nice day here, the atmosphere is relaxed, the entrance is free, the weather hot. The historical park of Guayaquil is indeed a beautiful place. The park is seen from the other side of the Guayas river.
