Parque Cuscatlán

Alameda Franklin Delano Roosevelt, San Salvador, El Salvador

Cuscatlán Park is everything an urban park should be: a place where one can find green oases for temporary respite, cultural institutions and activities (here, there’s the Tin Marín Children’s Museum), and historical markers that give clues and information about the past. Cuscatlán Park in San Salvador ticks all these boxes. One of the most moving sites in this park is the Monument to Memory and Truth, a memorial that, for many visitors from the States, evokes associations with the Vietnam War Memorial, with thousands of names inscribed on sober stone panels.
