Parque Araucano is located in Las Condes, a neighboring barrio (district) in Santiago next to Providencia where I live. The park features a beautiful rose garden, dirt paths, some playgrounds, basketball courts, and plenty of grassy areas that are perfect for playing soccer.
Right across the street is Parque Arauco, one of the larger shopping mall complexes in Santiago. When walking around, I was surprised by the number of American restaurants and stores in Parque Arauco. To name a few, there's TGI Friday's, Ruby Tuesday's, McDonald's, North Face, Colombia, and Merrill (I was shopping for outdoorsy clothes...).
Here are some pics of the area from some visits to Parque Araucano and the mall on a number of occasions over the past couple weeks.

the first time I've played in quite a while, but I enjoyed it so much I definitely need to do it more often : )
