Francisco Alvarado Park, Zarcero, Costa Rica. Landscape designer Evangelisto Blanco shaped this dream-like wonderland out of conifer cypress trees in the 1960s. The enchanting park beckons to the young at heart with figures like waltzing elephants, a monkey on a motorcycle, and a crowded bullfight ring. Above are 16 topiaries that curve to create eerie and mysterious archways.
