“Lovely, quiet day”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

I really enjoyed my visit. I spent a lovely time wandering and taking pictures of the picturesque gardens. Conveniently free, well maintained and even clean bathroom facilities. Be sure to descend the cave-like steps in the middle of the gardens to a little oasis at the bottom.

“Lovely”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Just wanted to mention that this free park is way nicer than the Jose do Canto garden where they charge admission. A lovely green place to relax in the shade. Especially impressive are the huge ficus trees with their serpentine roots.

A quiet space within easy walk of centre. An interesting sense of history and the past shipping times

“Favorite of the gardens”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

No-cost and lovely. Not too large and very pleasant way to spend an afternoon or an hour. Restoration efforts are visible and the results are quite nice. We loved this garden.

“A peaceful and tranquil place of beauty”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

My husband and I went to this park twice during our stay in Ponta Delgada. It was only a 5 minute walk from the Sao Miguel Park Hotel. It was such a beautiful, lush garden filled with caves, gorgeous flowers, palm trees, aloe, bamboo and ferns. It also had ponds with ducks. We got caught in the rain and stayed in one of the caves until the rain stopped which was no more than 10 minutes. This is a must see if you love nature and lush gardens.
