The peacefulness of the countryside by the beach
It is the largest urban park in the country, with 83 hectares and a privileged location, very close to the sea. Parque da Cidade is an ideal place to stroll, exercise and relax in the company of a book or even a light meal, taking advantage of the shade.
A verdant expanse stretching up to the Atlantic Ocean, with ponds, lanes for walking and jogging or bike riding and various species of trees and birds. The City Park is a pleasant space, perfect for family outings or to spend long hours of tranquillity and freshness on hot days.
It was designed by the landscaping architect Sidónio Pardal. The first stage of the work was completed in 1993 and the inauguration took place in 2002. The stone walls and pavements create a rustic atmosphere and the direct access to the beach contributes to a connection between the countryside and the sea that makes this space even more attractive.
The City Park also houses the Environmental Education Center.
