  • Centrally located in the city, this park is a place of relaxation. A beautiful landscaped park with ponds, exotic and indigenous trees and plants. A small café is located in the Park. A place to stay on a bench and listen to the chirping of the birds.

  • The good folks of Tenerife have been putting a lot of effort into planting the borders, repairing the fountains and getting things ready for a festival in the park. It looks beautiful. There is obviously a huge street market taking place and various events and stages being set up for bands etc.
  • Nice green park with a quiet relaxing athmosphere. Loads of trees, ponds and flowers. Kids playground is also present
  • Santa Cruz is probably one of the least appealing attractions in the entire island, this park though deserves a visit. Huge variety of plants, trees and flowers. Nice for a quiet walk or a few hours with kids
  • Great little park, cafe at top does lovely food at reasonable prices. Flowers are fantastically vivid, trees impressive. Lots of interesting artwork and its all very clean and tidy. Surrounding buildings have some impressive architecture. Good stop for a bit of peace.
  • Very good designed public park with lots of trees, spaces, recommend for a visit. There are playing facilities for children, also have few ponds which the children love to see fishes, frogs etc. Also there are few bars and restaurants within the park, and also have public toilet available. Parking spaces are limited around the park. However it's very close to the city centre so you can walk to there or taking the bus.
