Parque Eduardo VII, Lisbon

#3 of 86 in Fun & Games in Portugal
Playground Fun & Games
Offering views of Lisbon and its river, Parque Eduardo VII occupies a sprawling area near the center of the city. Named in honor of the British sovereign who visited the city in the early years of the 20th century, the park spans more than 26 hectares (64 acres). A meticulously landscaped oasis of green lawns and box hedges, this park serves as both a recreational area and the site of regular art shows, concerts, and book fairs. The park's two greenhouses contain a vast collection of exotic plants, including several varieties of palms and cacti. Opposite the greenhouses you can visit a sports pavilion named in honor of athlete Carolos Lopes, the winner of the country's first Olympic gold medal.

  • This part of Lisbon is very urban, with lots of new modern European buildings. So it's pretty great to find such a large, open park right in the middle of all of that. The park itself is nice, but wha...  more »

  • Gorgeous park, very hilly, beautiful sculptures, wonderful surrounding colourful architecture. Locals take blankets and sit under the trees or sunbathe and watch the world go by. Perfect for a picnic, lunch break on the go or stroll.
  • Nice garden in Lisbon. In June we can appreciate the book fair.
  • Green Space in the middle of the city, playground with café and ice cream place close by. Tennis courts, botanical garden...just wonderful!
  • Nice Park and Garden. In the top of the Garden we have a nice view of the city of Lisbon.
  • Well manicured green spaces surrounded by trees on either side. Gradient walk. Can be tiring if walking upwards on the incline but well worth the effort. Can see the sea at a distance. Must see.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
