Parque de San Telmo, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

3.5
#6 of 8 in Parks in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Nature / Park
Located at the end of the one of Gran Canaria’s busiest streets, Parque de San Telmo provides a relaxing and shaded refuge from the bustle of the surrounding city. The park itself abuts a section of the old city wall, and contains a baroque chapel from the late sixteenth century. Relax on one of the park’s many benches under the shade of large palm trees, or grab a drink from one of the surrounding cafes and food stands. Be sure to pay a visit to the Modernist-style kiosk located on the edge of the park, which is an example of unusual architecture in addition to serving refreshments. Children can play and exercise on the playground or central green areas. Live music is often played in the evenings at the square’s central gazebo. The area makes a convenient post-arrival rest area as it is located next to the city’s central bus station.

  • A quiet, pretty park opposite the San Telmo bus station with a lovely bandstand, a delightful little church, a Belle Epoque building, now a café. A good place for a rest or a picnic.  more »
  • This is the quintessential Spanish city park; a smallish area within the densely built old city offering space for kids to run around, lovers to wander hand in hand, visitors to sit and enjoy a picnic...  more »

  • It's a pretty cool place really. Benches, shades, nice trees. Worth a rest of a few minutes here and take some photos.
  • Very nice place for a break after walking through Vegueta and Triana.
  • It is a park for the passage of travellers from the bus station, but it has a children's playground with a pirate ship, a closed Park to walk the dogs and let them loose, the Park hotel, kiosk, small office of tourism and the Church of San Telmo. It is next to the famous Trina Street in Las Palmas to make purchases, it's also near to the military Palace of the army, has a parking lot under the floor of the large park.
