Dr. Rafael Ma. Moscoso National Botanical Garden

Dr. Rafael Ma. Moscoso National Botanical Garden (Jardin Botanico Nacional Dr. Rafael Ma. Moscoso) is a botanical garden in the heart of Santo Domingo. The park was founded in 1976 and was named after Rafael Maria Moscoso, a Dominican botanist who cataloged the flora on the island of Hispaniola.

The garden's symbol is a "guanito" leaf (Coccothrinax argentea) which is a palm tree found in the garden. The garden is a decentralized institution that reports to the Dominican Republic's Presidential Ministry of Management.

An open-air trolley (operating every 30 minutes until 4:30pm) takes passengers on a pleasant half-hour turn about the park and is especially enjoyable for children. The garden hosts a variety of events, including an orchid exhibition and competition in March and a bonsai exhibition in April

Muy hermoso! Puedes tomar el trenecito para recorrerlo. Lo mejor es el jardín japonés,está hermoso y muy tranquilo para tirarte en el pasto y ver el lago. El río tenía mal olor.

Отличное место для семейного времяпровождения. По парку возит паровозик. Много пальм, есть японский сад.
