  • If you want to take a walk with your kids, family or better half, this place is a good spot. Its quiet within but near the entrances are coffee shops where refreshments are available.
  • This is a good park for children or to escape the heat that is typical of Andalusia. There are plenty of big, tall trees to shade park goers and also a place where you can entertain your children. There are plenty of swings to go around for the little ones and a safe place to let kids run. Several art pieces dot this park and provide some context for the ancient Roman ruins that are located just steps away. Attendees can get a little history lesson while they take in fresh air and relax.
  • A small beautiful public park great for a short walk/sitting down and having lunch, many trees and flowers, also a small kids play area on one of the sides with toilets No tables but many benches throughout the park so you are bound to find one in the sun or in the shade depending on your preference High palm trees and rows and rows of colourful flowers, several species of birds call this park home and you'll often see them flying here and there Also several small water features (only 1 was on and working while we visited), and a small bonsai garden which was closed which I'm sure would be lovely when open
  • Nice park.
  • Lovely place with big play area for children
