Moscoso Park, Vitoria

3.5
#8 of 13 in Parks in Vitoria
Minutes away from the city’s best hotels and beaches, Moscoso Park contains a number of lakes, a small zoo, an amusement park, a chapel, and a water fountain which is illuminated at night. In the heart of a busy city, the park is frequented by locals and tourists as a place of relaxation and recreation away from busy traffic. Take a long walk across the park’s manicured green lawns, or have a picnic with friends and family in a peaceful setting. A large playground area is set up for children, while adults have access to a well-equipped fitness center. There are snack bars scattered across the park, as well as a small library inside an antique train wagon, always a fun stop for children.

  • Very good to have a contact with nature the oldest Park of Victory still stands. It is worth visiting and preserve is much beauty and forgotten by the people of Victoria. I had fond memories of my childhood when I visited the victory. Romantic place beautiful but must be more preserved by the authorities.

  • Perfect for children, youth, adults and people of the best age. It has provided free Academy football field and available to 6 .00 p.m. to 19.00 hrs. Beautiful design with malls and sculptures. Need more policing!

  • Very beautiful and well maintained park in the middle of the city, nice to spend some time with the pleasant environment it provides.

  • A calm within today's bustling city is hard to find. But Parque Moscoso more than adequately provides that solace and has done so for the last century. As a bonus it's nestled among many examples of early 1900's architecture that beckon a time of grace & civility. Walk the Park's perimeter and the surrounding neighborhood amplifies the experience. The Park's layout/design is superior in creating gathering points or intersections for thru-pedestrian visits, events & while other areas offer creative, lush, varied noise-absorbing landscaping for a respite from normal urban activity. Board game players (checkers, dominoes, cards) are rewarded with ample space, while children's play areas & fitness equipment are also plentiful in this studiously planned, relaxing open-space. There's an open patio restaurant that attracts workers at lunchtime along with several food/beverage vendors about. The water pools wind their way creating seating islands connected by artfully tree-limbed footbridges to give the park further sensory depth in an ideal Park experience.
  • A beautiful place in the middle of the city, quiet and great for kids to play. Needs a bit more attention from authorities regarding maintenance but still a great place
  • It's the most traditional park in town. Had it's glorious time 40 years ago. Today needs more attention from public authorities but still holds its charm.
  • Fountains were dry because of drought. Everything else is fine.
  • A nice place, it needs more care from the public authorities

Where to stay in Vitoria

The two main neighborhoods to stay in when exploring Vitoria are Praia do Canto and the area close to Parque Moscoco. Hotels dominate the selection here, with simple rooms in chain and independent lodgings, alongside luxury options. Budget-conscious travelers will find side street hostels appealing, as well as the more basic among the collection of pousadas (guesthouses) in the city. Stay closer to the airport, or the main bridges leading off the island, if you wish to get out of town on a regular basis to explore other areas of the state.
