If you have a couple of hours - and just want to relax and wind down. "Quinta" certainly is an option on your list. A good Picnic Spot spot too. If you go there in November till February - watch out for that Chilean sun :)
It is a metro ride away. It has a lake but no particular flowers or shrubs. You could spend a pleasant 30 minutes or more wandering around. I was here to visit train museum and Human Rights museum, both close by. If you want Green, Santa Lucia is closer to centre.
You can stroll and watch the families with kids, and the lovers. Few features of interest in the park itself, except the museum within it. Watch out for the limited access in and out of the park; it is fenced in.
Quinta Normal is a must. Right in front of the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, it is usually ignored by tourists. Don't do that. It is a beautiful park, great for more than just walking outdoors: plenty of museums inside or around it, all of them worth a visit.
Next to Quinta Normal underground/metro station. There is a few museums. Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos ( Human right museum, it's realy good one, and free, just partly English, but worth to visit) and Museo Nacional de Historia Natural.
I recommend this place because the park is really big, clean and beautiful and also inside the park there is a museum where you can learn about different things and they have interactive children's games, ideal to go with the family.
Lovely place to spend the afternoon. It was mostly us, some amorous locals, and school children walking about the park. The train museum lets you get up close with a variety of vintage locomotives, walk underneath and through a few, and was well worth the $1UD a person admission (800 Cp) but bring cash, that is all they take here... 更多
The Quinta Normal Park is the ideal place if you like nature, parks and culture, a very special combination that can only be found here. Inside you can find several museums, including Natural History, Contemporary Art, Science and Technology, Santiago Railways and more. Besides it is one of the oldest of the city, was founded in the nascent republic in... 更多

This is a nice park with a paddle boat "lake" and three museums, within the park and one across the street, the Museum of Human Rights. There is also a metro stop right outside the park on the L5 line.
