  • We found this park, by accident, while out walking on a very hot day. It is a small oasis of calm and worth taking the time out to wonder around.  more »
  • It's nice to walk in the garden and see all the Canarian and other flora. Parking can be tricky. If you are in Campo international, it is well worth the visit. But the best garden is up north, you rea...  more »

  • Over the years I've been here many times, and always admired the gardens. This last visit was the worst I've ever seen the gardens. It was unkept and looked very shabby. Whenever I was in Maspolamos I'd always make a beeline for the place, but not so sure now. Somewhat disappointing to see financial cut backs taking effect here. That's all I can put it down to.
  • A small park, but still beautiful in february. I love the atmosphere there, and the guy working there was so kind to me and my kids.
  • A tiny oasis of tranquility and butterflies in a sea of roads and commercial bleakness. If they added a little cafe in the shade of the palm trees it would be perfect.
  • This is a very nice little botanical garden with lots of interesting plants and insects. Entrance is free, DO stop by, it is worth it :-)
  • Maspalomas Botanical Garden. I gave it 5 stars because this little park has a lot of potentials. It is though not really being taken care of. You can see here wonderful exotic plants from all over the world that we know in Europe only from processed foods or cosmetics. During our visit we have seen several canary birds and a huge parrot as well. Let us hope that one day it will be better maintained.
