The “Circuito Magico del Agua” or Magic Water Circuit is the main night attraction of Lima city, its 13 fountains that have given to this place international recognition and even a Guinness record, look like a magical place after sunset. But This lights-and-music show has also another site, the historical. The group of monuments and fountains in display are dedicated to national heroes or historical figures from XIX century. The very place was a battlefield, Chilean and Peruvian soldiers fought during Lima’s occupation by enemy troops in 1881. In 1929 was first inaugurated as a memorial site to honor our reservist for defending the entrance to the city with their own lives, something they didn’t achieve, the enemy band occupied Lima for nearly 3 years till 1883.
This park inaugurated in 2007, was thought to be a fun place for adult and children. The little ones find here more than just a park, there are 3 interactive fountains where they can play with the water and get totally wet with their family and friends and take lots of pictures!, Take with you at least one change of clothes, dressing rooms are available for free.
Admission price is only 4 soles per person (less than 2 dollars), the park is open from Wednesday to Sunday and national holidays, opening hours from 4 pm until 10 pm. Take some extra cash in Soles(local currency) for some candies, popcorn, drinks or maybe to get a ride in the cutest train ever that goes around all the park.
