Located in Ybor City, this is the last piece of "free Cuba" left. Actually, just the name "Parque Amigos de Marti" belongs to the Cuban government - not the land, but there is soil from each of the provences of Cuba in the Park. It's a good place to go and reflect on the state of things in the world, and if you're American, its probably as close to Cuba as you're gonna get for a while.
The park is only open Monday - Friday until 3 p.m.

Directions: Parque Amigos de Marti is on 7th Avenue, directly across from Ybor Square.
