    A lovely park which must be visited. There are a lot of small caves and places to experience. Beautiful flowers and giant trees. There is a small snack bar and a children's playground in the south corner. A quiet place for a day of strolling.

    At the south entrance of the Park which was founded in the 19th century, a monument commemorates its founder, a major producer of pineapple of Sao Miguel. Various species of Palm trees dominate in the southern part of flat, then you will see a huge, ancient Australian rubber tree with giant root (for photographers), which is more spreading than grows upwards in the gently sloping part. The Park rises slightly to the North and one wanders through a romantic rock and cave landscape in several levels, which was created not by gardeners, but was created by a lava flow and collapsed parts of a volcanic cave. Standing from the sink large, Australian tree ferns, all around are conifers from Oceania and South America. Little Rock pulpits give an overview. Ponds with ducks, bridges and shady park benches invite you to linger. There is a café and a playground at the south entrance, through the North entrance, leaving the Park near the shopping centre Parque Atlantico, where approx. 100 m farther two more beautiful botanical gardens to visit are.

    We went to tuk-tuk, but gave it to enjoy nature care with caring and keep that space. Very good

  • Big park with a lot of vegetation. A lot of small caves, park is not "flat" - you will go on trails up and down, some of the trail leading under other trails.
  • Stunning urban park and arboretum- the man made landscape might just leave you rubbing your eyes in disbelief-amazing what could be built from slabs of volcanic rock a hundred years ago! And the trees - such a collection! The Australian fig will blow your mind. The scale of it is madness. A great half hour stroll up and down - azaleas and agapanthus line the walks. Do beware that local teens from the high school nearby do seem to frequent the little grottoes and caves and engage in some flagrante delicto after classes here.... (yeah. We stumbled across 2 couples on BOTH times to the park - geez.)
  • Beautiful clean Park within the city
  • Very nice garden to walk and lost in internal between centuries-old trees and labyrinths with various types of plants and flowers.

Where to stay in Ponta Delgada

As the island of Sao Miguel's primary tourist hotspot and center of activity, Ponta Delgada boasts perhaps the widest array of the lodging options in the Azores. Check into one of the luxury hotels in the core, closer to the ocean, to treat yourself to swimming pools, spa facilities, and a host of other amenities. Alternatively, try a smaller guesthouse or private villa slighty farther from the sea to save a bit on costs while still keeping yourself within reach of the area's churches, museums, and coastal fortress. The city itself is relatively compact, so most of the hotels in and around the city center provide easy access to its historical sites and tourist attractions by foot.
