in the centre of Funchal. Not a big park but enough greenery and two fountains to enjoy. Great with Christmas lights till 6 January and a fab Christmas market just opposite, there are FREE toiltests in the park! A bonus in Funchal!

This public park is a beautiful little oasis in the centre of Funchal. When we visited in December, the park was decorated for Christmas with an extensive Christmas village. A very interesting little place just off the Avenida Arriaga.

Surpasses expectations during the festive season especially, Adjacent a pleasant restaurant lined thoroughfare, the gardens are a feast for the eyes, as is the surrounding architecture... Great for kids of all ages...glitzy and shimmering array of neon and coloured lighting, no expense has been spared......More

We were here during the Christmas period. It was so beautiful and was all laid out as a magical wonderland. There was a small train for children.

The gardens felt quite festive with their decorated trees and little gnome chalets. Probably better to see at night when illuminations are on.

This beautiful little park also has a native tree which I have not seen anywhere else in Funchal. Nice place to rest when exploring the city center.
