  • Can it be a small park and city being in the top 10 of Tripadvisor? You get a couple of pictures and is OK, but...

  • Nice park for a short relax. Pretty fountains and interesting, beautiful benches. Conveniently located at the top of Avenida del Mar and just before Marbella Old Town. Has a carousel for the children.  more »

  • . A typically Spanish garden. Unique along the Costa del Sol (the other towns were too poverty-stricken until recently to own one, and once they became richer, this style of garden was out of fashion), the Alameda Gardens in Marbella are a MUST. The Alameda is situated off the main street - the Calle Ricardo Soriano - and next to the Avenida del Mar piazza, which is itself just off the seafront promenade. So it is five minutes from the beach. A traditional Spanish town garden, it was started in the 18th century; one of the oldest gardens in the province of Málaga or in the whole of Andalusia, apart from the Moorish gardens in Cordoba and Sevilla, which are 500 years older. There are no lawns here, of course - that's not the tradition on Southern Spain with its searing hot summers. Trees and shrubs and flowering plants lining walkways. You feel as though you are walking through a cave or a tunnel at some points. It is a marvellous place, full of greenery. Palm trees, bananas, loads of exotic plants. There are even some Ficus - rubber plants you'll know them as, you may even have one in your living room. These wouldn't fit in, however, as in the warmth of Marbella they have grown to 50 feet high. Look out for them - you'll recognise them easily. Their leaves are the same size as in your home, it's the rest of the tree that is enormous. There are benches, ceramic benches. Yes, you are sitting (almost) on a china chair! They are tiled and patterned - check out my photo - and are extremely attractive. Although a little hard to sit on. :-) The pièce de résistance, however, is the fountain. A decorated fountain. Walk around it and read the inscriptions on the ceramic plaques. You'll see that it has a name - the Fuente de la Virgen del Rocio, named in honour of one of Andalusia's most beloved Virgins. There are regular pilgrimages to her shrine, and you can see the names of the various towns where they have Brotherhoods (Hermandades) in her honour. On summer evenings there are sometimes concerts or other cultural events here in the park. When there is music, they often make the fountains play up and down in time to the music. A lovely cool shady spot to rest your feet and cool down after a walk around Marbella. .
  • Doesn't look like much from the entrance but fun water park inside. Long queues for all the slides meant we only did each one once but the girls still loved it. They especially enjoyed the large wave pool. Could use more sheltered areas to escape the midday sun.
  • It's a great park area with children's playground at the end. It's particularly safe for children as no pets are allowed as well. Small concerts, Theatre and other events are often organised here. Sitting quietly under several 100+ year old trees to read or meditate is a great feeling.
  • Small but nice park for art lovers.
  • Amazing and laid back place
