A hudge park with many faces: forest, special trees, flowers, labyrinthe for kids, playground (big! which is rare in Portugal), birds, barbecues(many many with wood!). You can spend a few hours there if you are in Sao Miguel for long time, it is wonderful, but...More

This place is a bit off the beaten track but worth finding. It is quite a large forest park with lots of species of trees and plants. There is a large enclosure housing deer. There is a whole network of paths and you can even...More

If you can't have a barbecue at your hotel or appartment in Ponta Delgada. Just drive up to Pinhal da Paz and take your barbecuw with you. Lot of fireplaces and a nice ambiente for a walk.

Most of the Azores flora exotics and so is this park. The "pino" is Japanese cryptomeria, paths are lined with azaleas, hydrangeas, etc. The part we saw was not scenic or beautiful.

Beautiful stone walls on either side of a driveway that leads to the park. Lovely first impression. We went on a Tuesday and only saw three other families there so it was definitely tranquil. We were delighted with the bamboo forest which is something we...More

So well kept and interesting. Place to take photos. Enjoyed visiting nearly every day! Could do with a few more benches.

Bring an umbrella! This place can be rainy even if it is bright and sunny in Ponta Delgada. Without one, we still enjoyed a quick walk along beautiful paths, and even through the hedge maze (which is a little broken down, alas), but we couldn't...More
