Nature / Park
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.

  • From Porto with tram 1 or bus 500 arrive in Foz do douro region and after walk along the coastline approximately 2 Km castelo do queijo reaches. In the face of unfolding the huge but very clean and safe Park Cidade a real gem in Porto.

  • Can't say that in Porto, we lack of air, since the city turned to the ocean and the Douro River. But it is soft and pleasant to walk throughout the year, in the middle of these treed walkways. Family, jogging, go fast!

  • Amazing oasis in the city. Landscaped and with character, you can enjoy going for a run, a walk with the dog, play football with the kids, or have a family picnic. In summer it holds an iconic musical festival.
  • Perfect for walks, joggers, family time, solo time, relaxation and to enjoy getting away from the city noise for a bit. The park also has FREE Wifi access points provided by the city of Porto, how awesome to study and relax in such an environment. As you walk through the park you'll notice so many turns, beautiful escapes, and many birds.
  • Great green areas for anything you want to do
  • Spacious and beautiful park near the sea. Many plants and birds in ponds. Nice to relax.
  • Perfect place to rest and have time in family
