Close to the coast this is a lush and tranquil backwater of Porto. Pleasant to walk through from the "Cheese Castle" back towards the city. Catch a bus on Boavista to continue the journey.

Visit the city park, go apace and entering the sea, is a great event; then take a coffee by the sea and watch the setting of the sun.

Greatly used by locals. Huge area, could do with a few more benches. Couple of lakes with geese and ducks.

If the beach gets too crowded or is too hot, then this smallish park is a great place to relax. Few activities that we found - but a pleasant walk. Unfortunately no park cafés and we did not even find an ice cream seller

This is a worth seeing city park that flows into the seaside. Safe and peaceful especially near the lake.

Nice park to cool down when the sunning at the beach gets too hot. Definitely recommend to get an ice-cream outside the park and walk around in the trees.
