Stroll or jog along the pathways, and visit the lake to rent a boat and skim across the water. Kids will love the merry-go-round. It’s best to take snacks and drinks with you, although vending machines are also provided near the entrance.

  • The walk up the quite steep hill was well worth it.....I say that as I have problems with my hips and back.....but I’m sure no problem for fitter people! It’s exceptionally well kept...very clean...lo...  more »
  • A wonderful playground for all ages. The Park's entrance was, however, hard to find and it requires good walking shoes that come up to the walk from the seaside promenade as it is steep and with small sidewalks. The Park is not as significant but from the have a nice view of the sea.

  • Brilliant family park, it has playground areas and even a carousel. Plus a tower and 4 old cannons, the boating pond, trees, flowers, walkways, fountains and sculptures. Lovely place to spend an hour or so.
  • Nice park with magnificent views. Are you up to some boating? You can have it too. Cool place.
  • For visiting this nicely maintained park you need to check opening hours since it is actually closed part of the day. Nice to walk, row a boat (again: opening hours are limited), or visit the kids' playground with an old fashioned carousel. Nice view from the monument (accessible using elevator or stairs).
  • Beautifully laid out oasis of calm. Well maintained with fountains and flowers galore. Lovely topiary and a sizable lake with boats for hire. Great views from the tower and loads of swings'n'things for the kids. Perfect for a time out from frenetic family fun.
  • Very nice clean park area. When we came mid week it was deserted. The boat rides were closed as was the merry go round. Its a historical site for people to visit but all the information is only available in Spanish
