We stopped by the university while wandering Concepción on a sunny Sunday afternoon and found it a very busy place. There were many people having picnics on the grass, taking photos, practicing dances and just enjoying themselves outside.
While in the area we also visited the Art Galleries in the Art Department (aka Casa Del Arte), and had a nice cheap lunch in the student area off Plaza Peru.
The campus is quite nice, with many open spaces and large shade trees. An enjoyable place to wander around.

Here's a good variety of Exhibitions and an especially interesting one of 90's figurative painters. At least one surprising idea! Upstairs portraits include Marcial Plaza Ferrand whose specialty was beautiful women -- a treat for guys. Entrance dominated by leftist themes in a mural donated by Mexico. Overall, very well done.

We drove to the Museum - there is a fee to drive into the Park. The Museum is an interesting collection of what a world traveler around end of the 19th century might collect from different countries around the world, including your home country. There is no charge for visiting the musuem, backpacks are not allowed in the museum, and they have a nifty way to safely store them while you browse. The Gardens are an interesting walk through with many different plant species, and you have some lovely views towards the coast. There was a small food concession near the parking (we did not purchase anything). But... once you finish the museum, head down to the shore, water, sand, and birds. The road down to the beach is gravel, good road for careful drivers. Sit at the beach for awhile - we saw many different species, including the whimbrel, and a large flock of Peruvian pelicans. The hiking paths are along the road to the beach. Beware when parking down by the beach - a friend got their car stuck in the sand, stay on the hard packed road.

The park was remodeled this year and it is a great place to walk with family with children. It has several Playgrounds for kids, a skate park, fitness corner and futball and basketball grounds appart from chess and pingpong tables. All in all its a 3 Km walk (round trip) and it is sure worth it to take a good breath in nature. For the ones who want to walk a bit more in the park is the door to Cerro caracol where one can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Concepción and BioBio river. Very nice walk for everyone. Plus, both park and cerro caracol are pretty well secure with police and security and for jogging at noght the park counts with great illumination.

I visited this briefly (when there was no event taking place) while I was waiting for a bus to go back to Chillán. A good idea to have it adjacent to the bus station, which must make it very convenient for out-of-town visitors to attend a football match (or other event). It looked in pretty good condition.

Most--if not all--of the shops inside are probably owned by the same company. Its location sucks (surrounded by highways). But then: it's a mall, after all. that said, the interior is actually quite pleasant -- more wood and (fake) leather than one sees elsewhere. And one of the cafes is definitely recommendable: Cassis. Bottom line: Mall Plaza Trebol is good enough for an afternoon of window shopping in a city that does not offer much otherwise.

My boyfriend and I spent an hour or so in and around the plaza, and we absolutely loved it! The dinosaurs are huge and fun to see, and take silly photos with. There were a lot of families with young kids there, and they were having a blast climbing on and admiring the dinosaurs. The only reason I didn't rate it as "excellent" is because it was kind of small.

Something to see in a Cathedral, typically taking centuries to build, is a new one and here is one, probably post-2010 earthquake. Here also is an actual image of God (and the rest of the Trinity), something of a rarity in our age -- remember this is new. Plus it has images of the best saints: Ambrose, Aquinas and so forth plus 18 panels on the front door for your interpretation. Good luck!

If you are looking for good aerobic hike with some nice views of the city, this is a beautiful path to take. On the weekend there were many individuals and families hiking up or down the path. An historic city park dating from the late 1800's, it has several overlooks and neoclassical features including a faux castle ruin. Unfortunately the lookout tower at the top (dating from the 1960's, so nice architecture for those modern architecture aficionados) is not accessible, but the view at the top and access to the adjoining park area is worth it. They have recently restored parts of the path and features of the park although they are still working on some (November 2015).
