  • This is a beautiful park that was particularly charming because of the flocks of chickens that live there. The cockerels strut around, guarding their harems, while the hens and chicks peck around the flower beds and bushes. We followed them up to the impressive cactus gardens. There are donkeys, misleadingly labelled as 'mouflon' (horned mountain sheep) but fooling nobody, and a random statue of a zebra. There is a display of sculptured disembodied heads that lie on grassy areas. The park has interesting gates with cafes and toilets nearby. It seems well equipped with play facilities. There is a library with an attractive lake and small waterfall next to it.
  • Nice park for a wander through with lots of interesting birds and plants. Great play area for kid's at the top as well as cafes and toilets. Interesting Cactus area too. Plenty of shade for those hot days.
  • Great find! Big park with loose chickens, pond, cactus area and goats. All very well maintained and overall a great park. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area
  • Love this place, came for the first time 9 years ago and I’ve just recently been back last week. We spent our whole last day in Benalmádena walking around the park, seeing all the animals and cooling down in the shade before our transfer back to the airport. Definitely worth a visit, so many places to sit, loads of public toilets and play areas. Can’t wait to go back!
  • Beautiful park with pond and cafes, well hidden amongst the tall buildings, just off the main road and beach. Doves and chickens and ducks run free entertaining the visitors. Also some goats are kept in enclosures as well is turtles around the ponds. Great for kids.
