A little history…

The park was inaugurated in 2015 with the aim of making the Mapocho river navigable, where nautical activities of small boats are allowed. It is part of the network of parks on the south bank of the Mapocho River and the idea of creating it came from the Chilean architect Cristián Boza, who began to develop the idea from Fundación Futuro, laying the first stone in January 2011.

It was opened with the name of the Jesuit priest Renato Poblete, however, in 2019 the Ministry of Housing and Urbanism announced the name change to Parque de la Familia.

Today the park has more than 2,000 species of trees and plants, as well as a colorful route of 4,500 m2 of urban art, giving rise to different viewpoints and trails around the Artificial Lagoon.
