    Beautiful park but a bit neglected, a shame since this municipality generates enough income to be able to keep it, since you don't have anyone and services were even closed, the park itself are invited to stroll and enjoy something different in the South, recommended to go to the hours of less heat, open only during the week which seems neither logical to me , from 10 am to 6 pm.

    The small but fine Botanical Garden is probably like being overlooked. A small oasis of calm the man like to pay a visit can. Free admission, but no dining facilities

    Via TripAdvisor gone here.. is terrible. No beautiful blooming flowers and plants such as here on the pictures. a lot of dead and dore plants.. not worth getting there especially for. Entrance free. Toilet is not in use.

  • 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.
  • A pleasant botanical garden - not extensive but worth a half hour stop
  • 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.
