    Garden friendly plants, where it is good to walk. It is not very large but charming.

    They told us very well this park but disappointed us because it is very badly maintained, many plants dry, certain that we were this summer and with the heat it must be difficult to have it better, of all forms is quiet, beautiful park with benches for relax in the shade.
