 Havana and most cities and small towns are dotted with parks. Parque Lenin is Havana's largest park and recreational area. It is a huge 1600-acre park of rolling hills and popular playground with the locals about 7 miles south east of the city. It is located next to a large lake. There is an art gallery, a riding school, an amphitheater, an open-air movie theater, a freshwater aquarium, a botanical garden, a small amusement park, cafeterias, refreshment stands, a narrow-gauge railway and more within the boundaries of the park. On weekends it is packed with Cuban families. There are also smaller parks scattered around the metropolitan area where you can go to relax.

The National Aquarium is in the Miramar district of the city. There are also a zoo in Havana: The run-down Parque Zoológico de la Havana.
