Located next to Pedro de Valdivia Bridge in Isla Teja, Prochelle Park was born in 1861 when the German settler Eduardo Prochelle began the construction of its private garden, which would be separated from the Prochelle House in 1953 due to the construction of the Pedro de Valdivia’s bridge. Acquired by the city hall in 1977, it was declared a national monument along with Prochelle I and Prochelle II houses in 1985. There you can find a variety of native and introduced plant species of a large size, and also a privileged view of the river. The Prochelle Park is also an access to the UACh’s Cultural Riverbank and the Culture Campus.
