The park is located downtown Funchal and is overwieving the ocean. A tranquille place with beautiful flowers, a pond with swans and ducks, plenty of benches and a cafe. A stroll around is really worth while

An immaculate city centre park with fountains and beautiful flowers, with swans and fine lawn. Over the wall there is a old view of the harbour.

I didn't see this in the best of circumstances as I was dodging showers. But it seemed a nice place to wander around, away from th traffic of the city. Even in November there were plenty of flowers and areas of shade, and places to sit, looking out towards the harbour.

There are plenty of benches and seating areas both sunny and shady to choose from. It is fun to watch the cruise ships departing and the harbour activity. A must do in Funchal, peaceful... More

Beautiful small park, free to enter, with swans and fountains, above the marina. Lots of benches to sit on and admire the view. Separate children's play area.
