    Relaxing
    This place is always relaxing, but at the moment it is more so as there are very few peeps around. Watching the Waterfalls throwing the gallons of water down, is truly mesmerising. There is also fish, plus Lizards & birds to watch, & it's all free.

    Lovely place to be
    Every time we come to Puerto we will come here two or three times. There are two parts to it. There are the steps up to it with waterfalls, planting and fish. This leads you to what was the hotel where Churchill, Agatha christie an the Beatles stayed. Behind the building is the main parque, which was the original garden to the hotel. It is now often used for running. At the front of what was the hotel, to the left, is a cafe that probably has the best views of Puerto.

    Lovely place
    I was recommended this place by a friend and it didnt disappoint. Very relaxing and unexpectedly quiet (probably beacause of the situation we are going through at the moment).I loved the cakes and the barraquito whilst enjoying the amazing views of Puerto. Also great service by the young guys which i found this very rare in these kind of nice places on the island.

    Really poor
    Follow up to my earlier review. Reply from Loro Park acknowledges that it was a very busy time and so one would expect that they would make arrangements for a fairer experience for all visitors. Unlike the UK they have reasonable weather and a good level of tourist activity all year round I'm sure but obviously their disregard for visitor experience , obviously a 'pack them all in ' approach and receive lots and lots of cash is their main motivator. Basically, unless you like the experience of being pushed , jostled , peering at animals from afar with little or no enrichment activity in a generally sad and outdated environment in July and August , save your money

    Nice open space
    We never saw this park area last time we came and glad we did as we had come up to the Lily gardens which we found were closed down. The is a great open space for locals and visitors alike to walk around and generally wind down from the bustle below in the town. Lots of paths and seats flowers and trees have been planted over the years and now looks well established. There is a cafe just below which did very good hot chocolate.

    Nice park, nice views
    A not very big but beautiful park. Located on a hillside, which makes it offer a very beautiful view of the city. Rich vegetation, paths going up in steps, a few small ponds, unfortunately not very well maintained. At its highest point there is also a small cafe.

    No Water!
    We enjoyed our walk up to Sortija Park and then across to Taoro Park. The views are fabulous and there is a nice cafe for lunch in Taoro. I only gave it 3 because the water wasn't switched on which was disappointing after a strenuous hike up. The surrounding area was very pleasant.

    Off the beaten track.
    It’s up the hill but worth it. Approach it from the back then walk down the main drag and then down the meandering rams and steps whilst looking at the view of Puerto de la Cruz as you go. Much better than approaching from the coast side. It’ll make sense if you look at a map.

    A nice place to excercise or to relax
    We have been visiting this park on our holidays over the last 10 years. It's a bit exhausting if you are coming up from the town with the many stairs or the steep road alternative but it's worth it. There are a few cafes and an Anglican church nearby.

    A formally laid out city park
    We walked around Parque Taoro wherein is the English Church (Iglesias Anglicana) and a memorial garden to the air disaster of 1980. The park is laid out with walks and trees but there is no grass or under planting so there are large areas of bare red earth. At a couple of spots are what geologists call 'Aa'. These are piles of rocks formed from volcanic gases escaping and vitrifying the ground many years ago. At the end of the park is the congress centre then beyond Jardin Taoro. The garden is a really nicely laid out place with assorted plantings, waterfalls, terraces and sloping pathways. There are splendid views of the town. The garden is more pleasing than the park.

Parque Taoro and Parque Sortija are set both sides of the original Casino Taoro, the first hotel in Tenerife (opened in 1893). The casino is now closed, but the gardens both sides are well worth the visit. The main Parque Taoro is set on a steep hill overlooking Puerto, with stunning views. The flat Parque Sortija has recently been replanted with palm trees, leaving two original sections with natural volcanic ash and scree which have the original vegetation for the area, very interesting botanically. It was an easy walk from our hotel (Parque Vacacional Eden), and the stuning views of sea and Teide made it a regular spot to visit at sunset. It is one of the best free parks on the islands.

This park is very restful. Once you've done the climb, you're rewarded with beautiful views over the city and of the sea and there are several fountains at the top. There is also a café where you can take refreshments.

We visited Parque Taora many times during our stay in Puerto de la Cruz. We were staying at the Las Aguilas Hotel, near Las Arenas. We used to walk down downhill from the back path of the hotel into Puerto de la Cruz and stop for coffee at Parque Taora on the way.

It is one of the largest parks in Puerto de la Cruz, covering 100,000 sq metres, and situated in a beautiful residential area. Many joggers and dog walkers use the park along with visitors who make the steep climb up the hill from the town. It is a great place for nature lovers and gardeners with extensive landscaped gardens full of tropical and sub-tropical plants plus a lot of bird life. The crowning glory has to be the cascading waterfalls and wonderful views of Puerto de la Cruz below. So worth a visit.
