It has several sections worth visiting. I saw a lot of it from the little tourist train as well... More

The Palmeral is truly astonishing -- 200,000+ palm trees -- and El Huerto del Cura is its premier garden. Worth the tiny charge for entrance.

A massive area of palm trees. A lot of different kinds of trees and plants everywhere. Really big place, and u might get a little lost too wondering around. You should visit this place if you want to see all kinds of plants and feel like your not in the city.

This is the reason for visiting Elche - a park which goes round the city, free to enter, magical for strolling in, amazing trees, good explanatory writings, splendid children's playgrounds, terrific dove-cote - we loved it

We wandered through park mid morning in September. The temperature was pleasant to walk in . The palms are amazing & the park is well maintained we watched the maintenance of the trees & the brave council men undertaking the climb (rather them than me)! The park is respected as there is no litter & people instantly pick up dog... More

Elche is famous for its Palm trees , so this was just an extension to the rest of the area. Could be made more spectacular with water features .
