A vibrant land, the Parque Metropolitano is a beautiful green area which hosts on its premises the hills of San Cristóbal, Chacarillas, Gemelos and Pirámide. Occupying about 728 hectares (1798.93 acres) of land area, it is one of the largest parks in the country. Its forestation began in 1921 and, in 1926, the mayor Alberto Mackenna transformed it into a public area. The summit is 860 meters (2821.52 feet) above sea level, crowned by an image of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception sitting on a pedestal. This is a favorite spot for a Sunday outing, whether on foot, bicycle, car or funicular. There is a zoo, two swimming pools, picnic areas, restaurants, children's play area, a chapel and botanical gardens replete with diverse floral species. Visitors are recommended to go all the way up to the summit in order to enjoy a full view of Santiago, particularly in summer.
