The recent amazing December weather Madeira is experiencing, I have never seen so many lizards on the steps leading up to the park. It’s great to see new and re-opened cafes in the park now bustling. Lovely lake and pretty flowers even in December time....More

Pretty little free gardens in the city centre. Tea cafe, lake, swans and lots of trees and plants. The best bit is the amazing views over the rest of the city

Even if you have a few moments this is a beautiful park to visit. The views of the harbour and island are spectacular. The gardeners do a sterling job maintaining the amazing planting. Plenty of seats and the lake with swans and wildfowl is gorgeous...More
