A small park, located a the Southern side of the Av. de Andalucia, a bit West of the El Cortes Ingles department store.
The park honours the famous painter Pablo Picasso and was inaugurated in 1981 on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.
A nice place to relax a bit and enjoy several nice sculptures.

Visited late January and although a couple of gardeners doing their bit, it was still looking rather scruffy - not helped by the homeless dossing on the grass and benches occupied by “drink fiends”. Park was opened in 1981 to celebrate the centenary of Picasso’s birth and there’s a large, sombre modern monument dedicated to him by a local artist. At one end is a small childrens play area and large trees are dotted throughout the park (no doubt giving welcome shade in the summer months). I also noticed a plaque celebrating Malaga’s 1987 twinning with Passau in Germany. Don’t think many tourists visit here as it’s away from the main city areas. Nearby is an interesting Gaudi styled flat complex.

The Jardines de Picasso is a large park that was inaugurated in 1981. It is dedicated to Pablo Ruiz Picasso, Malaga’s world famous artist. The park occupies a space of 16,000 square meters. The park features a very large bronze statue dedicated to Picasso and created by the sculptor Migule Ortiz Berrocal, a sculptor from Malaga. The park also has many ficus trees that are more than a hundred years old. Other plants in the park are jacarandas and tropical flowers. The ficus trees names are the Ficus altissima, Ficus macrophylla and Ficus retusa, which are some of the oldest in Europe, and have roots that are huge and come out of the soil. Other plants are the dragos, araucarias, ébano carbonero, jacaranda, yuca, palmera reina, palmito, palmera datilífera, and guachintonia.

The park has another sculpture called the Arbol de la Amistad, which is made of metal and was given to the City of Malaga by the City of Mobile, Alabama, in 1978. This is a sister city of Malaga and Malaga gave it a copy of the sculpture El Cenachero (The Fishmonger).

I pass by the Jardines de Picasso many times and I always enjoy it because there are many flowering trees here, as well as other plants and some good modern sculpture too.

Very spectacular trees and several interesting sculptures. A 15-20 minute walk from Calle Carreterias, past an El Corte Inglés department store. There are some excellent gourmet restaurants and a wine bar on the top floor. The park needs to be better maintained. Only go if you are up for a walk.

The Jardines de Picasso is a small neighborhood park and always has people walking their dogs. There are places to sit and there are a few sculptures. The trees and flowers are beautiful.

Good green space in the middle of the city on one of Malaga's main streets. Something that the Spanish town planners seem to do well. Plenty of shade and benches, and a few interesting sculptures.

It is a nice park although it is simple and outside the center. There are some beautiful sculpture but you might see them. There are some playgrounds and many different and old flowers. It is near a mall so it is great place to relax

Poorly maintained small park that appears to be the sleeping place of homeless. Bins over flowing with rubbish.
