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.

  • 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 »

  • 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
