Don't expect a real park, it is more a nice place with lots of bars and cafés and some greenery. You can start your day with a coffee here and watch how the locals meet with their friends and greet their neighbors.

Nice place to take in the Las Palmas atmosphere. This was near the harbour and museums and shopping venues , also the main bus station which is underground and accessed by an escalator is right in the middle of the parquet.

Excellent little park to have a cup of coffee and some cake. Even the drinks at the small cafe weren't expensive and you get to be left alone while reading your newspaper. Great for a midday coffee and newspapers.

Not really a park but an area with plenty of bars and nightlife. Loses a bit of character during the day.

This little park has it all really. The statues are delightful and the area is very well kept and beautifully clean. There is a couple of nice bars to have a snack and a beer in. The buses run through the centre of the park making it easy to get about. There is always something going on in the centre... More

loads of bars to hang out in really close to the port where cruise ships come in. There is a tourist information building with free wifi which is hard to connect to but there are many bars with tables in the square where the wifi is free and fast. You can also catch the local buses here to all parts... More
