This tiny garden right in the middle of Funchal is an oasis of cool green planting and calm. Fountain, moving water, beautifully laid out beds and dramatic trees - whether you stop for a sit and a coffee or just cut through it is a delight.

Take your walk visiting Funchal downtown, and, if you want to relax in a really refreshing place, this is it. Secially in summer, it´s quite pleasant.

The gardens were decked out for Christmas with a train, Santa and sleigh, etc. However, the plants were visible and we enjoyed our stroll round looking at the very different species to those at home.

Nice Central Gardens and nice to spend a while wandering around the trees, shrubs, plants etc. Nice to see a couple of swans on the pond. At certain times they also have free music and charity stalls

In a place like this you'll find that Madeira is an island of eternal spring! The advantage of this garden is that you can see it for free.

This is a lovely well looked after and clean park with plenty of seating and has panoramic views over Funchal harbour. Either eat in the small café situated here or bring a picnic, lovely flowers and small lake with fountains.

We went in September but we could imagine how hot Funchal would get, so this little garden must be a joy for shade at the height of the season.

Unfortunately although this was a lovely garden it was undergoing some changes probably as it was the end of their busy summer season. Very close to the taxi rank and a nice cool place to sit in the heart of the busy centre.
