On some of trips we were not sure which Bus to get us back up the hill to the Hotel so we walked through this lovely park. Some days there were weddings in progress etc. Lovely lake setting and gardens to walk through which took the pain out of up hill walking. Well worth a look.

What a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Nice playground for children as well. Good views over the harbour and visiting cruise ships.

Lovely little park, next to Governor's house. Well maintained, lots of benches to sit and look out to sea or the park or the lake. Very pretty & tidy with a couple of pieces of interesting machinery too including a steam engine built in Leeds!

Situated above the harbour it's a great place to sit and relax in the sun. There is a small lake with fountains, swans and other birds, a children's play area away from the main area, plenty of seating around and a good view of over Funchal. There are a lot of steps going up into the park.

Beautiful gardens, pond and views of Funchal and Harbour... A stroll through and a chance to sit and people watch is well worth the time!...Stop and smell the roses as it is said!!!!
