“Pleasant”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Quite nice for a stroll if you are visiting the centre of Funchal. There are a few steps here and there for the different levels so may not suit people with walking difficulties!

“A haven!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a relatively small park but a real haven of peace and quiet, especially if you're en route to or from the Lido area. It has views across the sea and a small café. Towards the town exit there is a series of low stone walls which are alive with gorgeous little lizards when the sun is one them - well worth spending 5 minutes watching them interact.

“Worth a look on your way in to town”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

It is good to see and visit a park so close to the town centre. It is well kept and you can access the harbour more easily through the park

“Lovely park overlooking Funchal”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

A slight climb up from Funchal centre brings you to this lovely garden. Great views over the town and marina. A good selection of flowers and trees and a lovely cafe overlooking the ornamental lake, with swans. A children's play area and then steps down to the promenade. Definitely worth a visit.

“Just beautiful.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

You really should visit these gardens on your walk into Funchal town. Beautiful, colourful plants, flowers and trees, with a beautiful small lake with fountains.
