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

A pleasant place to walk, have a snack/drink, listen to live music and generally soak up the local atmosphere. Reported to be risky at night, but we have never experienced any issues before Midnight - after that everywhere quietens down.

This is not really a park, there's some trees and a few benches and that's it. There's a bunch of seniors playing domino. Santa Catalina is only worth going if you need to catch a bus. I couldn't take many pictures of people hanging there obviously, but I have uploaded a few (all faces blurred) where you can see, in... More

A very moving area because of a big buss station and shopping mall... the narrow part linking th 2 parts of the city. When we passed by to the coffee places on the other side of the park I saw everybody playing domino, chess and other local card games. Adding to that the more latin spanish accent the canary island... More
