    This is a huge park with hidden botanical gardens, which were a great find.
    We asked our taxi driver to take us to the botanical gardens & we ended up at Parque Eduardo VII botanical greenhouses, rather than Jardim Botanico. Although we were initially disappointed, we decided to go in anyway. We were pleasantly surprised, there are 3 "greenhouses"; hot, cold & sweet - but they're not traditional glasshouses, & although it was a little humid in the "hot" house, it was never uncomfortable. The areas were almost empty of people & there are plenty of benches to sit & relax & take in the beautiful surroundings. Outside of the botanical areas is a lovely landscaped lake & gardens, another great place to find a shady spot & chill. The park extends all the way to Avenue Liberdade, with striking monuments & formal areas.

    Beautiful views
    The park is not too large that you can't navigate around it but the views are worth it. It is right off the Marques de Pombal metro and where all the tour buses stop, so easy to get too. A quick walk from there takes you to the top of the park where you can view all the way down the main street in Lisbon to the waterfront. Maybe some of the best views in the city. Definitely recommend the visit.

    Regular tourist stop
    The park is a wide slope becoming interesting mainly on the rising right side with statues, a baroque church and an upmarket garden restaurant. Sheltered outdoors tennis courts take up the other side, the small botanical garden is almost hidden in the uppermost corner. The local metro station on a side street is elegant.

    Huge Hillside Park
    This is a huge park and it is sited in the middle of the city. On a steep hillside, so the good strategy is to start at the top and walk downhill. Some nice flower beds, great views of the lower city, ends at the big traffic circle. All the tour buses come here to park.

    Central Greenspace with a Spectacular View
    This park was located literally across the street from our hotel in Lisbon. It was a convenient and enjoyable alternative route to reach the Gray Line meeting point at its southern end where several of our tours started from. The park is one of the larger greenspaces in central Lisbon at some 64 acres in size. It is rectangular stretching north/ north east from the Marques De Pombal and Av. Da Liberdade. It is named in honour of King Edward VII of England after his visit to Portugal in 1903 to strengthen ties between the two countries and reaffirm their ancient alliance. The present design of the park dates from 1945. There are several structures in the park. On its eastern side near the Parque Metro Station is the Pavilhao Carlos Lopes (Carlos Lopes Pavilliion). This was built in 1922 as the Portuguese Pavilion for the International Exposition in Brazil and later transported to Lisbon. At present it is used for various private events. At the north end of the park on Almaeda Cardeal Cerejeira is the Miradouro Parque Eduardo VII an observation point that provides a sweeping view of the City of Lisbon and the Tagus River. South of this on the western edge of the park is the Estufa Fria a massive greenhouse divided into three distinct parts: Estufa Frie ( Cold Greenhouse), Estufa Quente ( Hot Greenhouse), and Estufa Doce (Sweet Greenhouse). The greenhouse originally opened in 1933 and was completely remodeled in 2011. The park is the site of the annual Lisbon Book Fair held in May and June since the 1930s. The park also is host to the Wonderland Lisboa a Christmas market with activities for children. Aside from these annual events the park attracts hundreds of locals daily to jog, walk their dogs or just enjoy its natural beauty.

    Lovely park
    A lovely park with vast views, a stunning pavilion and plenty of places to relax in the sun or shade. Well connected to the vintage tram 24 route (near the top) and Marques de Pombal metro (near the bottom). It slopes ... a lot.

    Expansive Sloped Park
    Lucky for us we always found ourselves walking through the park down towards the Marquis of Pombal statue. The slope was gradual but down is always better than having to walk up! The park was quiet and surprised us with its size. It had its own metro station entrance, a botanical park, and a maze of well manicured bushes that some athletic dogs were leaping over and over! Unfortunately we never did get to see the views from the top of the park as we always visited in the evening. Lighting was good and plentiful so we had no qualms about walking through it.

    Huge park
    Lovely big green space that happened to be hosting an equally massive book fair when we were there. Lots of lovely mature trees with benches to sit under their dappled shade and watch the world go by. The mini maze hedge could do with a tidy trim. Estufa Fria botanical garden at one end and a gentle slope to the statue Marques de Pombal statue at the other. Doubt many venture here from the very centre but it is worth a visit just to stand and stare and look back to the city.

    Nice place to walk and relax
    My wife and I were here on a Gate1 tour. While the City bus tour took us here, we also went on our own 2 days later. Then we saw the 2-week Book Fair, which was interesting. We saw dogs splashing around in the heat, with their owners.

This park would not be on my “To Do” list when visiting Lisbon. The park is an uninteresting green city space with a zig zag line of clipped boxwood hedges running in the middle of its grassy area and along its sides, keeping people out of this grassy area. On either side is a patterned cobblestone sidewalk, lined with trees and a couple of benches. The view is at the top end of the park which is on a hill. It would be an uphill walk from the Pombal Statue and probably not a comfortable one on a hot day. Fortunately, our tour bus stopped at the top of the park where the attraction is – the free viewpoint. Even at ground level, visitors can see directly down the grassy area to the tall city buildings around the Pombal Statue and, then, out towards the Tagus River and beyond it to the other side. Up on the observation deck of the skinny tower called, the Monument to the 25th April Revolution, the view over the tree tops would include the Castello Jorge. Beside the tall skinny tower is a fountain, that I am sure has some symbolic meaning, but it is ugly because it looks as if it is still in the construction stage. The huge Portuguese flag behind the fountain is only an impressive sight on a breezy day. Interestingly, the park was named after the British king, King Edward VII, who visited the park in 1903. Our guide said that in October a Book Fair is held in the park. For shoppers, focus instead on the many blocks of designer shops along the Ave. da Liberdade.

This is a 26 hectare public park just that was named after King Edward VII of England after his visit to Portugal in 1903. The present configuration was the design of Portuguese architect Francisco keil do Amaral in 1945 and acts somewhat as a green and park extension of Ave. da Liberdade to the northwest of Praça Marquês de Pombal. The park slants downhill from northwest to southeast in the same line as the avenue. From the Miraduouro at the northwest end of Parque Eduardo VII, you can see all the way through the park, into Baixi and to the Tangus River in the distance.

Like many parks across Europe there are small gardens, tree lined footpaths, fountain pools, occasional sculptures and statues scattered around, kiosk, cafe and other points of interest. Here you can look for the Carlos Lopes Pavilion, Estufa Fria, 25 April Monument (northwest end) and grand monument of Marquês de Pombal (southeast end). There is a long row of managed hedges as well that continue in a straight path from Ave. da Liberdade that extend almost from end to end as well.

Overall, Parque Eduardo VII is a good use of green and leisure space for those who live and/or work in this area of Lisbon and potentially a nice spot for tourists and visitors to spend time if you are seeking wide green space during time spent in the city.

This is a massive park in the middle of the city. It is quite a hike from the other tourist areas, but it's a lovely setting to relax and take in the views of the city. There are sculptures and gardens to explore or just sit on a bench and people watch. Lots of dogs and kids running around enjoying the green expanse!

On approach along Avenida de Liberdade, the park didn’t seem like much, just a brilliant green mirage ahead of us with numerous pathways and a very steep uphill walk. But when you reach the pinnacle and look back at Lisbon, you’ll see why this climb is worth every bit of effort!

It’s my favorite viewpoint in the city, even above the famed Miradouro das Portas do Sol. if you visit on the right day, the world’s largest Portuguese flag will be flown at the top (northern) end of the park. Redesigned in 1945, the space covers 64 acres (26 hectares) in the middle of the city and is named for an English king. The Carlos Lopes Pavilion, leftover from the 1922 expo, can be found near the top as well.

Beautifully yet simply laid out park at the northers end of the Avenida de Libertade.Wide pathways and a selection of features including statues. Somewhere to come when the bustle of the shopping areasgets too much. The gentle walk uphillleads you to an area where there aregreat views of the city down to the River Tagus. Recommended

This huge park goes up the hill. The views from up on top are fantastic, of the downslope greenery, the Pombal circle, the lower city and the river. You have to search for a way to get to this view point, or just take a taxi. The park itself is huge. Again start at the top because the slope is daunting.

An exciting wide open alley to have a walk around if you like open spaces. If you happened to be a lucky one who travel with dogs, it is on of the best spots for your pet. You can also observe plances landing at the airport, while a stunning panorama view down the city and the river opens up from the top.

We visited this park on a Monday in early January. You can exit El Corte Ingles directly into the park but you need to climb a hill. Once you have done that you are rewarded with excellent views. There is also a relaxing cafe for a cup of tea and a public restroom if needed. After that the rest of the park is down hill. There is an amusement park at the bottom but thank God it wasn't running when we were there. We recommend.
