Like I said in a previous review, I don´t know much about trees or plants and even less when it comes to bonsai trees. However, this is a good place to visit since it is also a small oasis in the town. The visit was probably after season because it was a bit messy with a lot of fallen leaves. The water ponds were out of water and some maintenance is needed. It is a tranquil and relaxing place, worth a visit. What made me a bit down though was a collection of canary birds and a parakeet in way too small cages.

This was quite a surprise find ..... you would not normally expect to see a Japanese bonsai garden in Andalucia. But we were intrigued so paid the tiny entrance fee and were very surprised to find some really excellent bonsai trees (and having been to Kyoto Japan and seen quite a few, this was pretty good!). Whilst it was slightly well-worn and untidy in some parts it was overall a very rewarding visit (though the piped music was rather cheesy).
We had a very relaxing visit, the only visitors there in fact, and can highly recommend it - Giorgio Castagneri's maple tree on the slate table was particularly beautiful in my view (see my pics).

Needs a lot of work but was during 2020 . I guess like everyone around not allowed out much. Set on the road that takes you to the beach from the police station and bus station. Also this road has all the main banks on it.

I visited this garden yesterday. The lasting impression was the sorry sight of two Macaws. They were in a small cage with no visible signs of fresh food. Their bowls were empty and their water bowls had some water. On top of their cage was a half full plastic bottle in direct sunlight. I assume this was to refill their bowls with what by then would be hot water.

I am sure the Park would like to be know for its s tranquil setting and Zen type vibe. Not the thought of these two wretched birds that do not seem to be looked after.

Not the tourist attraction they intend.

A completely random collection of bonsai trees, fighting parrots, yoghurt-eating ferret, sunbathing puppies and beautiful carp. Whilst the area is small there is so much to explore and love the way the owners have laid out toys for young children to play with too.

For 2 euros (1 euro for children and pensioners) I think it is an off-beat thing to take a punt on and also welcome shade too at a hot time of day. Japanese music that seems to be piped around the garden also quite soothing.

It is closed. On their website it state it is open, free etc etc From what i could see from the closed Iron gates there are few Bonsai potted plants and few trees here and there .

Nothing like a botanical garden !!!!. It is sad :(

We love bonsai so we vsisted this museum hoping to see some top examples of Bonsai. The main problem with the museum is it despaprately needs a clean and the exhibits need some TLC, the place is quite clearly neglected which spoils your visit. If you visit you will see some very good examples of bonsai but in poor surroundings, the japanese gardens are very neglected so only visit if you are prepared for this.

Make no mistake this is 'just' a garden with bonsais into it. Anyhow the visit was surprisingly nice and interesting. Go for it !

we visited this off season and were the only people in the garden which shows off a great variety of trees sculpted into bonsai, some of these were familiar species others more exotic. it is laid out over a variety of levels which makes it challenging for anyone with mobility problems but doable as it is a small site. it is well worth a visit and cheap at 2 euros. beware the bird droppings around the pond area which were substantial on our visit.

A small place of silence with an excellent collection of bonsai trees. I was surprised, that it was maintained by volunteeres, who do what is needed to keep this garden going with all their passion to the little trees. Good choice to visit during a city walk for a little rest.
