I have hiked to this garden many times, but I have really only known its magic through the lens of the camera. Here are some specimens, showing the greatness of the Botanical Garden and the magical corners within it. I hope you enjoy it and, if you visit, you feel as enthralled as I did...
The truth is we found it by chance, our purpose was not to visit but it coincided with our visit to Selwo Marina, at the exit, we saw the signs and stopped by. it was very good, large, with a variety of areas for everyone, ideal for taking children. Maybe a little abandoned or neglected for taking pets, but as I say, my daughter had a great time.
On Monday I discovered this park inadvertently while walking in the rain. I had planned to enjoy a winter afternoon listening to the water supplier and snapping ducks in the water. The location of the park and the environment seemed ideal. I wonder how old the park is and ve the designer was, thanks for reading.
In a garden, you walk in with no expectations, but just around the first corner you find a whole different world, full of fountains, waterfalls, water jets, green everywhere, many different plants and other exotic birds. You travel the maze of hedges between the cooing and water birds. You look surprised since its pergolas and gazebos you're looking at a distant and exotic garden. If you go on your own, with friends, with kids, or whoever, you will discover the corner just for you. Be sure to discover it for yourself.
The Picasso Gardens are a beautiful space that were opened to mark the centenary of the artist's birth in 1981. Located in the heart of the town, surrounded by two major avenues (La Aurora and Andalucia), the park is symmetrically arranged to resemble the petals of a flower. The highlights include ficus trees, jacaranda and tropical plants. There are two giant sculptures in homage to Picasso, the works of the local sculptor Berrocal. There's a children's playground at one end of the park.
La Batería Park is newly built. I don't know exactly what the address is, just that it is located in Torremolinos and that there are plenty of signs so that you will know where you are going. It is one of those parks where you can find everything you were looking for. If you go with children, there is a very modern swings comples, including a tree soothers (pacifiers hanging your children when not in use more plastic balls inside). They also have trampolines and a carousel. If you want to walk around there is a large park with paths around a huge lake, where you can also hop on a boat. There are many things that will make the walk very bright such as trees with their respective posters, pergolas in case it rains, like me, ... Complete set of park antiaircraft batteries that give the name. The park is made up of a former barracks guarding the coast. addition to the guns that are museum pieces, you can see a bunker, and the magazine. A little bit of history. And if what you like is the view, you can climb to the lookout tower (which has elevator if you can not climb stairs) and see it all from above. look you find what you seek. ! Enjoy!
Framed by thick vegetation and manicured gardens, I found a joyous and colourful playground in this park. It has swings, various sized slides, and small houses, all made of heat resistant material and soft edges to prevent children from hurting themselves. In the shade of its leafy trees, there are comfortable wrought iron benches where adults can sit, like grandparents ve read the newspaper while their grandchildren play. It's in the Park of the Constitution. You can get more information from the Marbella Tourist Office in Plaza de Los Naranjos.
This park has a unique history, as it is located where previously stood the Convent of San Sebastian which later became known as St. Augustine. In 1680, an earthquake destroyed most of the Convent Chapel and it was abandoned. San Augustin Park now stands here, a beautiful park with old trees (Estoraques trees, originating from India) and a sculpture in tribute to those killed in the Civil War.
If you like Japanese gardens, you can enjoy a small but lovely one without traveling to Japan, in Alhaurín de la Torre in Malaga. It doesn't miss a detail, with its landscaped river, pond, waterfall and of course red bridges with oriental character. You can stroll along the stone floor, and enjoy a little bit of shade while listening to the waterfall. The flowers and trees are also very well chosen. It is so quiet and peaceful, which makes it a wonderful spot to relax and think. I hope you enjoy it.
A park with charm
Spain Park has a surface of 3864 meters squared. It offers facilities for adults and there is children's playground which has slides and swings. It is located in the heart of the city, on the side of the Town Hall Square or Plaza de Spain Fuengirola. What struck me was the variety of species of trees that the park had to offer, such as plums, eucalyptus, ficus, bay of pigs, melias, orange and palm trees of various species: Canary Island date palm or wasnintonia.
