San Salvador has a large urban park, the '''Parque Bicentenario''', popular with families, joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and nature lovers, providing a welcome respite to residents. Popular with locals, the beautiful botanical gardens of '''La Laguna''' located at the bottom of a volcanic crater showcase much native fauna. '''Zoologico Nacional''' (The National Zoo), and '''Parque Saburo Hirao''' (with a collection of native plants) are in the SE part of the city by the old Presidential House.

Visit '''El Boquerón''' to get up close to San Salvador's iconic volcano that last erupted in 1917 - there is a beautiful and well maintained walk along the rim, where you can peer into the crater 1,831 feet deep. The cooler temperatures at this altitude make for a pleasant walk with vastly different vegetation (Pine trees) and is popular with local and international tourists, especially on weekends. There is a small fee to enter the park and a small, but interesting information center. Tours can be arranged from most hotels. There are plenty of eateries surrounding El Boquerón, however there are restaurants along the main road offering some of the most spectacular views of the city such as [https://www.facebook.com/lindavistagardens/ Linda Vista Gardens], [http://www.lasbrumas.com/ Las Brumas] and [http://lapampaelvolcan.com/lapampa.html La Pampa El Volcán].
