Parks & nature in Porto

Park
“The city's lungs, a place to walk, run, socialise and meditate that was only created in the 1990s but feels like it's been here for millennia. Sidónio Pardal's plan involved filling the area with trees and running paths between them, with refreshing lakes and an appearance that changes with the seasons. There's a rural section with old houses where you can try a delicious Soundwich and visit the organic market on Saturdays. Estrada Interior da Circunvalação, 15443 Porto (Foz) PHONE: 225 320 080”

Park
“A joy for the aimless ambler, this 19th-century garden is flanked by graceful old buildings and dotted with willowy palms, sculptures, fountains and a bandstand that occasionally stages concerts in summer. Listen to the crash of the ocean as you wander its tree-canopied avenues. There's also crazy golf for the kids.”
