    Nice forest
    Good place if you want to chill in the forest, lot of place for families, if you like walking there is the path that starts there and goes along the coast to Silveira.

    A nice gem in the middle if mountains
    This place a nice heaven for those who would like to relax and feel the nature up close. This place has a nice finess trail, a out door gym, sone rare species of plants and a small enclosure for deers and hens. Some nice places for barbecue and rest rooms and wash areas. Everything is nicely maintained and well marked. We loved the visit.

    ein schöner Ort um abzuschalten, Ruhe pur!
    war ein Tipp von Einheimischen - schön angelegter Park, wird heute noch für Familienausflüge genutzt, mehrere Grillstationen im Park verteilt! Von hier aus bis zum Ende der Insel (Leuchtturm) mit hervorragendem Miraduro (ehemaliger Walfänger-Ausguck!) st es nicht mehr weit (mitten zwischen den Weiden entlang, schön staubige Feldwege, aber sehr gut zu fahren!)

We went to the park last year when we drive around the island. Now that we have come back to Pico we had to visit again. I love wandering around and using the exercise equipment. Hopefully we will be back again soon

The Parque Forestal is quite large and is located on several levels with areas for picnicing (including BBQ facilities and washrooms), play areas for children, football field and gardens. Varied plant life - trees, bushes, flowers. We visited in May and it was quite cool and rainy - probably more interesting in the summer season when the flowers are blooming.

Be sure to see the restored windmill and the unique lava flows from the two "mysteries" that surround Saõ Joaõ

Mysterio area, where the last eruption of Pico occurred. Interesting to see how a forestation program with pine trees tend to crumble the lava and turn the rocks into fertile land.

We stopped here to eat our bag lunch at one of the attractive tables in the trees. The surroundings are beautiful. We watched birds, and the deer in their enclosure.

Superbly well maintained park with deer, very clean restrooms, a playground, an exercise course and grills. Just a short walk away is a natural swimming pool well worth checking out also.
