Beautiful Park
Sep 2021
While walking around Funchal we came across this lovely park. The Park rises from the city centre, with beautiful views of the nearby harbour and sea. There are great flower displays with the bird of paradise flowers in full bloom when we visited. Lots of seats to sit and just watch the world go bye.

A great garden for relaxing, also there is a lovely outdoor cafe on the harbour side of the garden. Many events happen there, in the evenings you may come across salsa classes!!

On our way to the city centre, we happened upon the park. The park is lovely, with beautiful views of the nearby harbour. It also has some really nice plants to look at.

A miracle of the park
Sep 2021
Have you been to the park? no you are not. Take my word for it. That park is across from our CR7 hotel and we almost missed it. I would have eaten myself if I hadn't seen it. It is a park that has no flaws. From purity to view, magical trees and flowers ...

Nice place in the center of the City

If you visit CR7 museum (mainly for Ronaldo fans) it is only 2 minutes go to the park. It is really nice place with fantastic view at port and ocean.

Serenity in the middle of a city
Jul 2021
I received some bad news while I was in Madeira. This park provided me serenity and calmness from the tidal news I got from home. Beautiful park, well maintained, clean, and lots of seating areas ....

Peaceful Park to walk around
Jun 2021 • Couples
This delightful park is situated at one end of Avenida do Mar at Rotunda do Infante. The steps leading to the entrance are behind the Statue of Infante Dom Henrique, so an impressive entrance to start off with.

On climbing the steps into the gardens one the first sights is the small Chapel of Santa Catarina.

From the Gardens there are rather spectacular views out across Funchal and the Bay.

There are a number of statues dotted around the Park including Statue of Christopher,  Columbus, Torso de Mulher and the Monument to commemorate Gibaraltarians in Madeira.

A beautiful green space that is populated with a wide variety of trees, bushes and flowerbeds filled with a plethora of colourful plants and flowers.

At the top end of the Gardens is the picturesque lake and fountains.

There is also a Cafe and public toilets in the Park.

A really nice place to take a stroll around, there are plenty of seats to sit and rest and enjoy the tranquility of the place. Or just plonk down on the grass.

It does not take too long to walk around but it is worth it. There is no entrance fee to the Park.

Chill and Relax
Jun 2021
A very serene place for a picnic or meeting with friends. Probably not exciting enough to make a trip to just in itself, but worth popping into if you are walking past.
