If you want a beautiful place to walk, to run or just seat on the grass or on a bench and admire nature, this is the spot! Close to the sea, you'll feel the freshness of the air, admire the trees, the people walking, playing, running, or just relaxing. Just beautiful!

With large areas of grass and shade, it is possible to perform various leisure activities (sports, picnicking, sunbathing, walking, etc). The place is safe, frequented by athletes and people of all ages.

For those who don’t know the place, the City Park is the largest urban park in Portugal, with an area of 83 hectares that stretch out as far as the Atlantic Ocean, which is globally something of a rarity. Although very recent, the City Park has already won several awards. The Porto City Park consubstantiates one of the most perfect... More

This park is just off of the avenue of our hotel. It is huge and we didn't devote a lot of time to it. Clearly it is a popular attraction to Porto dwellers and is a nice green space within the city.

A beautifully maintained park used a lot by locals, especially on a weekend. With lots of trails and ponds/lakes scattered around it makes for a nice walk or feed the ducks/geese. There is usual some sort of hosted event on every week in the summer from the NOS festival to a large volley ball competition.

As part of a casual stroll down the Avenue da Boavista this lovely park was a nice surprise and the trees provided some relief from the heat! The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Well worth the walk!

The best park of Porto and surroundings. Well maintained, clean. Goes down to the seafront. Has lakes, a good restaurant, an exhibition about water within a Pavilion, and many many trees. Excellent for hiking. There is a free parking lot.

The connection of the park with the beach, makes it unique compared to many I have visited in Europe. The facilities are good , but they needed to have more activity , we have to take entertainments ourself.
