  • Beautiful park and arranged for children great fun with a large play area. Beautiful Lake with a single euro you can do a half-hour ride on a small boat. Look for young and old cannons. From the tower you can see all the seascape

  • This is a great place for a day out - there's a lake where you can hire boats (although check the times as they do close during the day, I think it's shut 12-2). The kids play park is really good too ...  more »
  • This place is beautiful with boating lakes and kids play area it's huge, The down side is it's up a hill to get to it and only 1 way in and out, we got a taxi there but walked back.  more »

  • A nice park with a bit of history. Great views from the top of tower which is accessible by elevator. A lovely little boating lake and an excellent children's play area. Downsides are that it lacks some good shade or a little cafe for those hot summer days.
  • Lovely fountains etc. There only seems to be one entrance/exit so we couldn't walk through it, had to retrace ours steps to get out.
  • I visited this park in the morning and it was very peaceful, there were plenty of people out for their morning walk/jog, but that didn't detract from the beauty of the place. If I were a local I would visit this often.
  • A nice try , but few grown up trees to provide shade on a summer's day. The other minus is the lack of a proper cafeteria to sit down and enjoy your stay.
  • Good for running. The park has track/path for running, toilets, water, outside gym equipment and a kids play park.
