Portugal's largest urban park, Parque da Cidade do Porto combines large manicured sections with sprawling natural areas. The park, the country's only public green area linked to the ocean, attracts morning joggers and cyclists, weekend picnickers, and impassioned surfers. Spanning more than 80 hectares (200 acres), the park grounds include sparkling lakes, verdant tree groves, blossoming hedges, and natural rock formations. Designed by renowned architect Sidonio Pardal, this green zone serves as a giant lung, providing Portugal's second-largest city with a breath of fresh air. Wild ducks, swans, and geese make their home here, along with more than 70 tree species and 40 plant species. Take a walk along the wide pathways and try to identify some of them.

  • It's a free access Park with about of 80 hectares of exuberant nature. Many plants, animals, lakes and very, very green. A great time for hiking as a family or for practitioners.

  • Porto's city park is huge and green. I was run over by four geese, they think I brought delicious, persistent followed a few laps to meet a lovely family, a fat son, a fat girl, there is a fat dog-cheerfully chasing the branches thrown out, but not too good eyesight.

  • But is well maintained, and there are restaurants, very close to the Castle, a green lung of the city, if you are going to be many days in the city you can zoom in, but better than you see other attractions
